We take the matter of Safeguarding very seriously. Our safeguarding policy is modelled on the “Yellow Card” from The Scout Association.
Our Bishops, Priests, and Deacons, may come into regular contact with vulnerable people, both children and adults. All our Clergy are required to hold a current DBS Check (formerly CRB Disclosure). As we are at the moment only a few, we accept a current DBS Check from another organisation. As we grow in number, we will make arrangements to obtain the DBS Checks or other similar checks, through a suitable umbrella organisation(s).
Any safeguarding issues that may arise are dealt with swiftly and with appropriate action being taken including, where necessary, reporting to the Police and/or Social Services.
We do not sweep anything under the carpet to avoid scandal.
