Our Commitment to Safeguarding

Protecting the vulnerable is at the very heart of the Christian faith. As a diocese we are committed to creating a culture which has safeguarding at its heart. This work in our churches and at the centre of the diocese is an expression of God’s compassion and kindness and of our commitment to the gospel. We want to ensure our worshipping communities are safe places for children and adults who may be vulnerable to abuse and neglect from being exploited or harmed. Safeguarding in the church community is everyone’s responsibility and a vital part of our care for one another for which we all need to be alert and responsive.

We care for those who have been abused in the past and provide a range of support and signposting for survivors and victims of church related abuse.

Within the safeguarding section of this website there is information on safeguarding support within your parish, national and diocesan policies, safer recruitment and training.
