Model Safeguarding Policy and Procedures

This guide to safeguarding policy, procedures and best practice has been put together by the Baptist Union of Great Britain to offer a template and a set of helpful guidance notes for churches as they develop or review the safeguarding framework for their church. It is divided into four sections:
1) Safeguarding Policy Statement – this is a template policy that you can use as a starting point for your own church’s policy
2) Safeguarding Procedures – these sections provide a clear outline of the reporting procedures needed in every local Baptist church
3) Best Practice Guidelines – these guidelines provide detailed information on key areas of safeguarding in the life of a Baptist church
4) Useful Contacts
