The official London residence of the Archbishop of Canterbury will undertake an independent safeguarding audit in March 2022.
In a statement, Lambeth Palace has announced The Social Care Institute for Excellence (SCIE) will be conducting an external and independent review of the office's safeguarding arrangements including governance and leadership, policies and practice guidance, case-work and recruitment and training.
The independent review was postponed in 2021 due to Covid-19 and is part of a national programme covering Church of England dioceses, cathedrals and palaces.
People are being encouraged to contribute if they have "first-hand experience of seeking a response from clergy, or others in Church-related roles, at Lambeth Palace, to safeguarding issues".
According to Lambeth Palace, all contributions will remain anonymous and confidential within the SCIE audit team.
"You may have disclosed abuse, you may have shared Church failures to respond to such disclosures or you may have shared concerns about unsafe practices or people. The independent auditors want to understand what is working well and what has gone wrong in the past," the statement read.
Canon David Porter, chief of staff to the Archbishop of Canterbury, said: "Archbishop Justin has made safeguarding a top priority for the Church of England. Lambeth Palace welcomes and supports any opportunity to enable us to see what is working well, identify where safeguarding improvements need to be made, and to plan for that improvement.
"These audits are part of the Church of England's wider commitment to develop and embed good safeguarding practice and culture, ensuring a safer Church for all."
