Safeguarding is the protection of adults and children from harm, abuse or neglect.
We all have the same rights and expectations of independence, respect, choice, fulfilment of our ambitions, to be heard, included, and to have privacy and confidentiality. These expectations are central to the way in which we interact with each other in our life together.
Safeguarding involves a range of activities aimed at promoting the individual’s fundamental right to be safe. These include making and maintaining safe environments for all, having processes to follow should something go wrong, and support for everyone involved.
Our church has adopted a safeguarding policy (currently being updated) for children, young people, and adults at risk. You can download this by clicking here. You can also download a child consent form by clicking here.
We also DBS check our volunteers and ask for parents to complete consent forms which can be completed here.
