We operate a policy for safeguarding children and a separate one for safeguarding adults with care and support needs, available from the church office.
All those in leadership, volunteering in children’s ministry or working with adults with care and support needs have undergone a check with the Disclosure and Barring Service and attend relevant safeguarding training every three years.
We have a safeguarding co-ordinator on the Eldership and the Diaconate, and we have two Designated People who can be approached by anyone who has concerns about the safety of a child or vulnerable adult.
We subscribe to thirty one:eight (previously the Churches Child Protection Advisory Service).
Copies of our safeguarding policies are available upon request. Please contact us for more information.
