Our Aim:

The establishing of safe, caring communities which provide a loving environment where victims of abuse can report or disclose abuse and where they can find support and best practice that contributes to the prevention of abuse

• The care, nurture of, and respectful pastoral ministry with, all children, young people and all adults;

• The safeguarding and protection of all children, young people and all adults;

SAFEGUARDING:

Safeguarding means the action the Church takes to promote a safer culture. This means we will promote the welfare of children, young people and adults, work to prevent abuse from occurring, seek to protect those that are at risk of being abused and respond well to those that have been abused. We will take care to identify where a person may present a risk to others, and offer support to them whilst taking steps to mitigate such risks.

If there are any worries about anybody's safety (i.e. might they be in danger of, or suffering from, any physical or mental harm), useful information may be found at:
