SAFEGUARDING

At St Martin’s, we are committed to the safety and well-being of everyone who is in or visits our church community. If you or someone you know feels unsafe, the following contact information may be useful to you:

Following recent changes to the law and the criminal records system, the Parochical Church Council for the Parish of St Martin with St Peter has prepared a new child protection policy, with accompanying procedures.  These were discussed and agreed unanimously by the PCC in May 2013.

See below:

SAFEGUARDING CHILDREN: POLICY 

 

SAFEGUARDING CHILDREN: PROCEDURES 

A policy and procedures for vulnerable adults was discussed and agreed unanimously at the July 2013 PCC meeting.  

See below:

SAFEGUARDING VULNERABLE ADULTS: POLICY   

                   

SAFEGUARDING VULNERABLE ADULTS: PROCEDURES   

 

Both policies and procedures will be reviewed by the PCC annually.

 

A set of hard copies is also on display on the noticeboard at the back of St Martin's Church and another set is kept in the Parish Office.

 

The policies refer to two Church of England reports, which highlight good practice in safeguarding within a church context: Protecting All God’s Children (concerning child protection) and Promoting a Safer Church (concerning vulnerable adults).  

 

The Diocese of Worcester’s child protection policy and accompanying documents are available: here

 

In May 2013, the PCC also agreed to the appointment of Mrs Sheila Treacher as Parish Safeguarding Officer.  Sheila is responsible for overseeing Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) checks, and for the functions described in the policies and procedures.
