Why a Policy?

At the heart of any effective intention to safeguard children in the life of a local church there will be a written policy statement.  The written policy statement is important because it: 

  • states clearly the commitment of the church to place a priority on promoting the safety and well-being of children and young people

  • gives confidence to those who act on behalf of the church when action needs to be taken to protect children and young people

  • establishes a clear framework for those entrusted with the care of children in the life of the church

  • gives confidence to parents/carers when they entrust their children to those running activities and groups organised by the church
