Our DBS Evidence Checker is Jan Vince.
We follow the Diocese of London Guidelines, and keep updated through regular training at Diocesan House, and through personal contact with the Diocese Safeguarding Officer.
All our volunteers who work with our children or young people are DBS checked and receive Safeguarding training. We have over 100 volunteers working and assisting in our groups.
We review the Safeguarding Policy each year and report to our PCC twice yearly.
We have recently completed a Diocesan Self Audit and have accomplished all the targets in our Action Plan.
Our Safeguarding role also covers the care of Vulnerable Adults, i.e. those who are 18 years and up to our eldest members.
We have two Pastoral Care Co-ordinators, Joan Weller and Jean Davies, who work with a supporting team and the Safeguarding Officers.
