Promoting a Safer Church

The care and protection of children, young people and vulnerable adults 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.

Below you will see our church's Safeguarding Policy Statement. 

Our full policy "Promoting a Safer Church" can be downloaded  at https://www.leeds.anglican.org/safe. 

If you are concerned that someone you know is at risk of, or is being abused, or presents a risk to others, please seek advice from a Safeguarding Adviser or if necessary report the matter to the Local Authority Social Care Services or the Police without delay.
