The safety and security of children is of the utmost importance and guidelines and policies are part of the processes that have been adopted to ensure that all children taking part in activities in our churches may do so in a loving, caring and safe atmosphere. In order to ensure this we have a Diocesan Safeguarding Policy and every parish has a Safeguarding Policy as outlined in the House of Bishops revised Policy document ‘Protecting All God’s Children‘ (2010)
