The Church of England, its Archbishops, Bishops, clergy and leaders are committed to safeguarding as an integral part of the life and ministry of the Church.

Safeguarding means the action the Church takes to promote a safer culture. The Parochial Church Council of St. Mark’s, Basford has adopted the policy statement ‘Promoting a Safer Church’ published by The House of Bishops against which it has developed its own Safeguarding Policy – this can be read by clicking on the following link… Safeguarding Policy.... on its website.
