SAFEGUARDING

In March Paul Wright sent this email. It is produced here to enable parishes to comply with his instructions.

Dear all,

I had cause to check a church service time and was disappointed by the lack of ‘front of house’ statement about safeguarding

There should be a clear statement on the home page – referring to another link is NOT good enough

You may have a drop down link or something similar but people should not have to go hunting NOR will referring to Diocesan or Church of England polices do the trick

Below is a simple but good example

SAFEGUARDING

As a church we take our safeguarding responsibilities very seriously and we are committed to ensuring our church and hall buildings are safe places for all.  If you have any concerns about safeguarding you can contact our Parish Safeguarding Officer, Mrs XXX - tel: xxxxxxx or email: xxxxx.net

This church has a drop down section entitled SAFEGUARDING at the top alongside SERVICES – MINISTRY – HALLS - EVENTS

Would everyone reading this please check and ‘challenge’

Many thanks

Paul

Rev'd Alan Keeler
