Child Protection

We believe that children are a gift from God; therefore we take our  responsibilities towards their protection, and the protection of those who work and care for them, very seriously. To this end we fulfil all the required child protection legislation and search criteria, as well as holding our own Child Protection Policy which is held and monitored by Churches' Child Protection Advisory Service (CCPAS). 

CCPAS “is the only independent Christian charity providing professional advice, disclosure checks (CRB/ISA/AccessNI), support, training and resources in all areas of safeguarding children and vulnerable adults, and for those affected by abuse throughout the UK.” (From CCPAS website:  http://www.ccpas.co.uk )

We have a nominated child protection co-ordinator, who is available to both children and childcare workers. Our aim is to provide a safe environment which is open to all, without discrimination. If you have any concerns regarding this matter please contact the church office and we can put you in touch with the relevant party.
