Promoting a Safe Church
At Js & Bs we aim to create a safe environment where children and young people are nurtured and protected and where all people, especially those who may be vulnerable for any reason, are able to worship and pursue their faith journey with encouragement and in safety. We work hard to safeguard children and young people, vulnerable adults as well as seeking to support those who find themselves in a difficult relationship.
At our Annual Meeting held on the 7th April 2019) we reviewed our Church’s Safeguarding Policy Statement and this can be downloaded from the downloads section of this page.
We follow the national legal and procedural framework for safeguarding children and vulnerable adults and Church of England policy and practice. Click to view:-
We will act promptly on any complaints made and work in close partnership with police and social care services where children or vulnerable adults have been harmed or are at risk of harm or mistreatment. We provide safe recruitment, training and support to our voluntary and paid workers with children and vulnerable adults.
