If you haven't already at your next PCC meeting you may wish to use the template: PCC Template Delegations
to formally agree who on your PCC decides what is a serious incident and makes the report.
Serious safeguarding incidents will be ones that would involve the Diocesan Safeguarding team and would tend to be major incidents of abuse, suspected abuse or wrongdoing. If you had such an incident you should have already been in touch with the team and they will guide you through the reporting process.
Other serious incidents include fraud, theft, data protection breach, a significant loss of money and other criminal activity. We suspect that if these occurred you would also want to contact St James House for advice and we would be able to help you through the process.
