Keeping each other and ourselves safe from harm is very important and it’s something we take seriously.
Here you’ll find information about our safeguarding policy, which contains useful contacts, and our procedures.
We accept the UN Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the International Convention of Human Rights, which states that everyone is entitled to “all the rights and freedoms set forth therein, without distinction of any kind, such as race, colour, sex, language, religion, political or other opinion, national or social origin, property, birth or other status”.
Every individual is equally precious and deserving of support and protection. We also acknowledge that there are some groups within society who are less able to safeguard themselves, children and some adults deemed ‘at risk’. For this reason we have set in place a ‘Safeguarding Everyone Policy’, which takes into consideration the needs of both of these groups.
We recognise the need to provide a safe and caring environment for children, young people and adults at risk.
We acknowledge that children, young people and adults at risk can be the victims of physical, sexual, emotional abuse, and neglect.
In all we do, we aim to both consider and promote the needs of children, young people and adults at risk, which is precisely what Jesus taught.
Our Board of Trustees is committed to safeguarding everyone, and support the efforts of Julie (Jules) Stephenson (Safeguarding Lead) and the team. Please see link below for a copy of our safeguarding policy.
