The audit report was extremely positive and showed our commitment to safeguarding. The audit was an opportunity for Durham Cathedral to assess its current safeguarding arrangements as well as an opportunity to identify how we can further improve safeguarding in the future. We have published an action plan in response to the questions asked by the audit team.
