Safeguarding Children, Young People and Vulnerable Adults
Children and Young People
At St George's Church we enjoy working with our children and young people and we take our responsibilities to care for them very seriously. All adults working with children and young people have been cleared through the Disclosure and Barring Service (formerly CRB) and there is training to ensure that everyone understands their responsibility when they are working with children. We follow diocesan guidelines about ratios of adults to children and other health and safety factors.
The PCC reviews the Child Protection Policy annually. The support and guidance from the Diocese ensures that we are up to date and vigilant to keep all our children and young people safe.
If anyone has any concerns about a child or young person at St George's Church they should not hesitate to speak to the Parish Safeguarding Officer, Freda Jackson or the vicar, Rev'd Martine Crabtree using the form in the right hand column of this page. They will listen to your concerns and take action as appropriate.

We will also meet vulnerable adults in many situations. St George's Church follows the diocesan policy and procedures for working with Vulnerable Adults and our policy is found on this page.
