Safeguarding Policy

Safeguarding Policy

The three parishes have adopted the safeguarding policies and procedures of the Church of England. In particular we are committed to:

  • the safeguarding of all children, young people and vulnerable adults
  • carefully selecting and training paid and voluntary staff who might come into contact with children or vulnerable adults
  • responding without delay to every complaint made which suggests that an adult, child or young person may have been harmed
  • cooperating fully with the police, local authority and any other appropriate statutory body in any investigation
  • ministering appropriately to anyone, child or adult, who has experienced abuse
  • extending pastoral care to those known to have offended against children or vulnerable adults whilst ensuring that children and vulnerable adults are protected from them
