Child protection in religious organisations and settings

A thematic inquiry into the current child protection policies, practices and procedures in religious institutions that have a significant presence in England and Wales.

Religions with a significant presence in England and Wales including non conformist Christian denominations, the Jehovah’s Witnesses, Baptists, Methodists, Islam, Judaism, Sikhism, Hinduism and Buddhism were considered in this investigation.

Religious settings such as mosques, synagogues, churches and temples fell within scope. Places of faith tuition such as Muslim madrassahs and Christian Sunday schools and places where children and young people gather in connection with their religious beliefs, including youth groups and camps were also investigated by the Inquiry.
