Promote a Safer Church

The Church of England safeguarding policy statement is based on five foundations and offers six overarching policy commitments:

  • Promoting a safer environment and culture

  • Safely recruiting and supporting all those with any responsibility related to children, young people and vulnerable adults within the Church

  • Responding promptly to every safeguarding concern or allegation

  • Caring pastorally for victims/survivors of abuse and other affected persons

  • Caring pastorally for those who are the subject of concerns or allegations of abuse and other affected persons

  • Responding to those that may pose a present risk to others

The care and protection of children, young people and vulnerable adults involved in church activities is the responsibility of the whole church. Everyone who participates in the life of the church has a role to play in promoting a Safer Church for all.

Call 999 if a child or adult is in immediate danger of significant or serious harm.

Safeguarding Policy

We fully adopt the safeguarding policy statement for children, young people and adults as set out by the Church of England in the ‘Promoting a Safer Church’ document.
