As members of this Parish we commit ourselves to care for one another safely.
We recognize that everyone has different levels of vulnerability and that each of us may be regarded as at risk at some time in our lives.
We commit ourselves to:
It is the responsibility of each of us to prevent physical, emotional, sexual, financial and spiritual abuse. We will report any abuse that we discover or suspect.
We agree to work within the guidelines of the Church of England and the Diocese.
Each person who works within this church community will agree to abide by this policy and the guidelines established by this church.
This church appoints Mrs Joyce Gould as the Parish Safeguarding Officer and Mrs Deanne Groocock as the DBS Administrator.
This policy is reviewed each year by the Parochial Church Council and re-affirmed at the Annual Meeting.
This statement was adopted by Holy Sepulchre Church Ashington, at a Parochial Church Council meeting held on 17 May 2018. (original document signed and on display in church)
