Safeguarding in the Parishes of the Benefice of Whorlton Group


We are entirely committed to safeguarding the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults at all Parishes of the Benefice of Whorlton Group. We constantly review our policies in this regard and we ensure that we are providing as safe an environment as possible for all those who worship at our churches or use our other premises.

Our Safeguarding Policy is in accordance with that of the Diocese of York. The Diocese is part of the Church of England, whose Archbishops, Bishops, clergy and leaders are committed to safeguarding as an integral part of the life and ministry of the Church. Our PCCs examine the safeguarding situation in each parish as often as possible. You can read more about safeguarding in our Diocese here: http://dioceseofyork.org.uk/safeguarding

Following this cimmitment, if you have information about a safeguarding situation where a child or adult is in immediate danger or requires immediate medical attention call the emergency services on 999. Do not delay.

Safeguarding means the action the Church takes to promote a safer culture. This means we will promote the welfare of children, young people and adults, work to prevent abuse from occurring, seek to protect those that are at risk of being abused and respond well to those that have been abused. We will take care to identify where a person may present a risk to others, and offer support to them whilst taking steps to mitigate such risks.

The Church of England affirms the ‘Whole Church’ approach to safeguarding. This approach encompasses a commitment to consistent policy and practice across all Church bodies, Church Officers and that everyone associated with the Church, who comes into contact with children, young people and adults, has a role to play.

The Church will take appropriate steps to maintain a safer environment for all and to practice fully and positively Christ’s Ministry towards children, young people and adults; to respond sensitively and compassionately to their needs in order to help keep them safe from harm.

As the Church of England is committed to creating a Safe Church envirovement, each parish in the Benefice of Whorlton has its own dedicated Safeguarding Officer. However, we would like to make the issue of saveguarding more effective and, therefore, we have appointed a Benefice Safeguarding Coordinator who will support each parish of our Banefice in this importand area of our ministry.
