Safeguarding

Holy Trinity is committed to:
  • The care, nurture of and respectful pastoral ministry with all children and all adults
  • The safeguarding and protection of all children, young people and adults when they are vulnerable
  • The establishing of safe, caring communities which provide a loving environment where there is a culture of ‘informed vigilance’ as to the dangers of abuse
All of our children’s and pastoral team volunteers are recruited according to ‘safer recruitment’ guidelines and have been DBS checked and receive regular training.  We abide by the Parish Safeguarding handbook and Good Practice guide when taking on any volunteers.
 
If you are concerned about anything either in relation to yourself or someone else, please speak to someone as soon as possible.
