Church of England Diocese of Rochester Holy Trinity Gillingham

Safeguarding

At Holy Trinity we believe that the church should be a place where all people feel welcomed, valued and safe. As such, we recognise the importance of good safeguarding procedures. At our PCC meeting in May 2019, we adopted the Church of England's "Parish Safeguarding Handbook" to replace our parish safeguarding handbook as the way in which we manage our safeguarding processes. You can find a copy of that document here: https://www.churchofengland.org/sites/default/files/2019-03/Parish%20Safeguarding%20Handbook%20March%202019.pdf

This handbook lays out the ways in which we implement the Church of England policy of "Promoting a Safer Church" in our local context. That policy is available here: https://www.churchofengland.org/sites/default/files/2017-11/cofe-policy-statement.pdf.  Both documents are available in hard copy from the church office.

If you have any further questions, or are concerned about any aspect of safeguarding at Holy Trinity, please contact us, using one of the numbers in the attached document.
