Promoting A Safer Church
At All Saints’ we have a robust and thorough approach to the protection of young people and vulnerable adults. As a parish, we have adopted the House of Bishops’ ‘Promoting a Safer Church’ policy and the Parish Safeguarding Handbook, incorporating the House of Bishop’s Safeguarding Policy and Practice Guidance.
Our PCC has formally adopted this and signed the Safeguarding Policy Statement Promoting a Safer Church which can be downloaded below
