Our churches make every effort to safeguard the welfare of children and vulnerable adults involved in worship and all church-based activities both on and off our premises. We aim to make church a safe and accepting place for all people.
Church leaders and all people working with children, or vulnerable adults are trained in safeguarding matters and DBS checked.
If you have any concerns that a child or a vulnerable adult might be at risk or being harmed you should contact our Circuit safeguarding officer, Peter Jackson (01287 637882) . Nothing in the policy prevents an individual contacting the local authority or the police if they consider someone is at risk or is subject to harm.
