The Catholic Safeguarding Advisory Service (CSAS) is the national agency for driving and supporting improvements in safeguarding practice within the Catholic Church in England and Wales. Its primary role is one of co-ordination, advice and support in respect of the wider job of safeguarding children, young people and vulnerable adults. CSAS reports to the National Catholic Safeguarding Commission. The Commission was set up in 2008 following the acceptance, by the Bishops' Conference of England and Wales and the Conference of Religious of England and Wales (CoR), of the recommendations in the 2007 Cumberlege Commission Report “Safeguarding with Confidence”.
