‘A Safe Church’ is the Diocese of Southwark’s safeguarding policy manual. A copy is always on display at the back of church for everyone to access. It’s well illustrated and laid out in an easy-to-use format which provides guidance for all parishes in the Diocese of Southwark on the issues of safeguarding children and vulnerable adults. This is a comprehensive resource for all members of St Giles’ and for those who lead groups, there are templates for activity forms and procedures.
The safeguarding of children, young people and vulnerable adults in our care is of paramount importance. We give the utmost priority to maintaining high standards in our care of children and young people, and follow the policies, procedures and guidelines published in the manual.

All adults working with children and young people are subject to an Enhanced Disclosure with the Disclosure and Barring Service (formerly CRB). If you have any questions, please contact us.
