Safeguarding Policy

The church takes seriously its responsibility to protect and safeguard the welfare of children, young people and the vulnerable entrusted to the church’s care and have therefore adopted the procedures set out in our policy to ensure a safe, caring and inclusive environment for children, young people and vulnerable adults.
