Safeguarding is the action the Church takes to promote a safer culture. This means we will promote the welfare of children, young people and adults, work to prevent the abuse from occurring, seek to protect those that are at risk of being abused and respond to those who have been abused. We will take care to identify where a person may present a risk to others, and offer support to them whilst taking steps to mitigate such risks.
