Safeguarding Policy

St John the Evangelist PCC operates under the guidelines laid down by the House of Bishops Safeguarding Policy for children, young people and adults. The PCC adopts the policy annually and receives regular updates throughout the year.

The care and protection of children, young people and adults involved in Church activities is the responsibility of everyone who participates in the life of the Church, overseen by the PCC.

Our Commitments:

If you are concerned that someone you know is at risk of, or is being abused or presents a risk to others, please seek advice from a Safeguarding Adviser or if necessary report the matter to the Local Authority Social Care Service or the Police without delay.
