As followers of Jesus we are keen to follow Him in sharing God’s love and care for everyone that comes into contact with us. We want to provide a safe environment in which people can thrive emotionally and spiritually. We want to do all we can to ensure their well-being, taking a responsibility to safeguard them from any form of abuse. We will properly record and report any abuse that we discover or suspect.
Staff and volunteers are trained and committed to working together to build an environment and culture that is safe. Appropriate checks with the Disclosure and Barring Service are made wherever appropriate.
