Safeguarding
   We acknowledge children’s and adults right to protection from abuse, regardless of gender, ethnicity, disability, sexuality or beliefs. We consider that the welfare of children is paramount. We will follow legislation, statutory guidance and recognised good practice in order to protect vulnerable people in our church. We will seek to establish a caring environment in which there is an informed vigilance about the dangers of abuse. All those who are office holders in the congregation have DBS Enhanced Clearance, as too have all visitors who come to lead worship. We will organise activities in such a way as to promote a safe environment and minimise the risk of harm to children and adults. We will follow a safer recruitment process for the selection and appointment of people to work with children or adults at risk, whether voluntary or paid, lay or ordained. We     are     committed     to     providing     support, supervision,   resources   and   training   to   those who work with children and adults.

   We   will   use   rigorous   and   careful   supervision to   protect   people   from   the   risks   associated with   known   offenders   within   the   congregation, including    implementing    contracts    with    known offenders   and   those   who   have   been   assessed as posing a risk.   We    believe    that    domestic    abuse    in    all    its forms   is   unacceptable   and   inconsistent   with   a Christian   way   of   living   and   recognise   that   it can     affect     both     adults     and     children.     All concerns    and    allegations    of    abuse    will    be responded   to   appropriately,   including   referring to   the   statutory   authorities   if   necessary.   We will   co-operate   with   the   statutory   authorities in   any   investigation,   will   follow   multi-   agency decisions   and   will   maintain   confidentiality   of any investigations to those directly involved. We     will     refer     concerns     about     staff     - volunteers   and   paid,   lay   and   ordained   -   that meet     the     relevant     criteria     to     the     Local Authority Designated Officer
