The Bishop of Winchester has today withdrawn the commission of the Dean of Jersey, the Very Reverend Robert Key, effectively suspending him. The Dean of Jersey’s suspension follows the publication today of an Independent Report, commissioned by the Diocese of Winchester’s Safeguarding Panel.
This found that there were a number of failures in the implementation of policies, in relation to a safeguarding complaint in 2008. The report raises concerns that the Dean of Jersey did not comply with key safeguarding procedures in dealing with the complaints of a vulnerable adult parishioner.
