SAFEGUARDING

St. Cuthbert’s church is committed to safeguarding children, young people and adults and creating protective and supportive environments where all people, and especially those who may be vulnerable, are able to worship and pursue their faith journey in safety.

We follow the national legal and procedural framework for safeguarding children and adults of the Diocese of Portsmouth and Church of England policy and practice.

Our parish policy which includes Disclosure & Barring (DBS) checks on those who work with young people and vulnerable adults s administered by the Safeguarding Team which is a subcommittee of the Parochial Church Council (PCC.)
