PCC Safeguarding Policy Statement

Every person has a value and dignity which comes directly from the creation of male and female in God’s own image and likeness. Christians see this potential as fulfilled by God’s re-creation of us in Christ. This implies a duty to value all people as bearing the image of God and therefore to protect them from harm. 

Further guidance can be found in the National Church’s Safeguarding Policies and Practice Guidance. 

The National Church’s Parish Safeguarding Handbook provides further advice on responding to concerns.
