What is safeguarding?
Fundamentally, safeguarding is about the use and misuse of power, and the exploitation or protection of the vulnerable. Given this, safeguarding is very much about how 'healthy' our church life is - in the Octagon Parish we work within a good safeguarding culture and follow sound safeguarding practice.
