Safeguarding 

We are committed to the welfare of all children, young people and vulnerable adults within our care.  All our staff, members & volunteers are expected to promote a positive attitude, valuing all individuals equally and treating everyone with respect in an environment where bullying, racism or sexism is not acceptable.
 
In our church community we will:
 
  • Treat all children, young people and vulnerable adults with respect and dignity
  • Ensure that everyone's welfare and safety is our top priority at all times
  • Always act in a professional way and not accept bullying
  • Liaise openly with parents and carers
  • Only use physical contact if absolutely necessary
  • Avoid being alone with children and young people at all times
  • Listen to, and act upon, any disclosures/allegations/concerns of abuse against children, young people or vulnerable adults
  • Attend appropriate Safeguarding Training
  • Make activities fun and enjoyable
  • Follow the safer recruitment process of the diocese to ensure all volunteers and paid staff are approved and adequately trained
