Promoting a Safer Church

Promoting a Safer ChurchThe care and protection of children, young people 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.
The Promoting a Safer Church document sets out the safeguarding children, young people and vulnerable adults’ policy of the Church of England

It has been informed by the Joint Safeguarding Statement between the Church of England and the Methodist Church, with whom we work jointly on many aspects of safeguarding policy on a covenant basis.

It is imperative that any church planning or undertaking work with children, young people or vulnerable adults adheres to the guidelines. If you need help in working this out please contact the Diocesan Safeguarding Advisors
