Stratton Team Ministry Safeguarding Children, Young people and Vulnerable Adults
“Every person has a value and dignity which comes directly from the creation of male and female in God’s own image and likeness. Christians see this potential as fulfilled by God’s re-creation of us in Christ. Among other things this implies a duty to value all people as bearing the image of God and therefore to protect them from harm". Diocese of Bristol 2014
Stratton Team Ministry recognises that it is the responsibility of all members of the parish to give paramount importance to the nurture and care of children, young people and vulnerable adults in a safe and secure environment. It is about preventing harm to children and adults wherever possible.
It is with this aim that that the Stratton Team Ministry have a robust Safeguarding Policy and Guidelines in place to ensure that a safe environment is maintained.
We want all members of the Stratton Team Ministry community to accept that it is each and every member’s responsibility to maintain a level of vigilance with regard to safeguarding issues and understand that it is the individual’s duty to refer concerns to the Parish Safeguarding Officers if there is cause for concern.
