‘A Safe Church’, Diocesan policies, procedures and guidelines for safeguarding children, safeguarding adults who may be vulnerable, and responding to domestic abuse, is published in the form of a manual. The policies, procedures and guidelines build on and update our robust child protection policies, and for the first time incorporate polices and guidelines relating to adults who may be vulnerable, in line with the Church of England policy ‘Promoting a Safe Church’. They also incorporate information and practice in responding to situations of domestic abuse, in line with Church of England guidelines, ‘Responding to Domestic Abuse.’
