Safeguarding

We take the safety and protection of our children, young people and adults at risk as a high priority at ABC.

 

Everyone who works with children, young people and adults at risk at ABC must hold a current DBS disclosure (formerly a CRB certificate), as well as follow our Safeguarding Policy and Procedures.

 

Our Safeguarding Policy and Procedures conform to current government and Baptist Union of Great Britain recommendations:

 

 

  • Safeguarding Children and Adults at Risk

 

 

As a church we have appointed:

Andrew Lewis as our Designated Persons for Safeguarding,

Victoria Orsmond as our Deputy Designated Persons for Safeguarding

and

The Designated Person for Safeguarding will:

 

  • Advise the church on any matters relating the safeguarding of children and young people
  • Take the appropriate action when abuse is disclosed, discovered or suspected

 

Responsible persons – Safeguarding Trustee

 

  • Oversee and monitor the implementation of the policy and procedures on behalf of the church’s charity trustees
