Safeguarding in

 

the Benefice

 
 

 

As a Benefice, we are fully committed to ensuring the highest standards of behaviour and care in our work with children and vulnerable adults. 

Our Policy

The Benefice has adopted the Church in Wales Safeguarding Policy. This means anyone in the Benefice, who comes into close contact with children and vulnerable adults needs to have undertaken training and some roles require a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check. 

Our Commitments 

Our commitments are detailed on the Safeguarding Posters, displayed prominently in each of our buildings.

DBS Checks

Whether a DBS check is required will depend on the nature of the role and the frequency with which it takes place, as well as the amount of supervision that is available.  The Church in Wales website provides guidance on the sorts of roles that require a DBS check.  If in any doubt, please contact Helen Carey (details below).

Training

Please contact Helen Carey to arrange a training place if you are new to a role working with children or vulnerable adults, or when your existing training certificate expires.

Queries

If you have any queries about the policy or need to arrange a DBS check or training place, please contact: 

Helen Carey on (07733) 410155 or

Safeguarding Concerns

In an emergency, where the immediate safety of an individual is in doubt, always contact the Police.  Otherwise, if you want to talk to someone about a safeguarding concern please contact the Church in Wales safeguarding team.
