Safe from Harm - the Home Office Code of Practice

Guideline 1

* Adopt a policy statement on safeguarding the welfare of children.

Church response:
It is the responsibility of the church council/leadership to adopt and implement such a policy. Please see the suggested church statement of protection of children.

The suggested church statement on the protection of Children:

* As the people of (your) Church we are concerned with the wholeness of each individual within God's purpose for everyone.

* We seek to safeguard all members of the church community, of all ages. It is the responsibility of each one of us to prevent the physical, sexual or emotional abuse of children and young people.

* It is the duty of a person working with children and young people to prevent abuse and report any abuse discovered or suspected.
