Safeguarding

The Methodist Church is committed to safeguarding as an integral part of its life and ministry. Safeguarding is about the action the Church takes to promote a safer culture. This means we will: 

  • promote the welfare of children, young people and adults
  • work to prevent abuse from occurring
  • seek to protect and respond well to those that have been abused.

If you have a safeguarding concern about a child or a vulnerable adult contact your Church Safeguarding Officer or Circuit Safeguarding Coordinator

Training

Therefore, we are committed to training our people and the aim of our Foundation Module session is... “To enable participants to deal confidently and appropriately in safeguarding and in promoting the welfare of children and young people in the church context.”

You might have great experience of Safeguarding in your work, please do still attend one of these sessions; to quote a leader in the education system “It has been really helpful coming to this session as it has helped me to apply my knowledge to Church; thank you.”
