SAFEGUARDING

Little Hands
Keeping people safe

At St Helen’s and in all the churches across the Benefice we want to do everything we can to keep people safe when they use our buildings or take part in our groups and activities. We are especially mindful about the safety of children, young people and vulnerable adults. Our policy is to ensure those in a leadership role working with children, young people or vulnerable adults have an up to date Enhanced DBS check and have undertaken appropriate training for their role.

For more details, please download and read a copy of the current St. Helen’s Safeguarding Policy (pdf).  All churches in the Benefice follow the St. Helen’s policy.
