Safeguarding at Church on Berryfields

Safeguarding is a Priority Here

Here at Church on Berryfields we recognise that the care and protection of children, young people and adults involved in Church activities is the responsibility of everyone who participates in the life of the Church. 

 

We want everyone to feel safe and secure so we are committed to:
 

  • Promoting a safer environment and culture

  • Safely recruiting and supporting all those with any responsibility related to children and vulnerable adults

  • Responding promptly to every safeguarding concern or allegation

  • Responding to those that may pose a present risk.

  • Caring pastorally for victims/survivors of abuse or other affected persons

  • Caring pastorally for those who are the subject of concerns/allegations of abuse and other affected persons
