Safeguarding & Inclusion

"Wherever I go across the diocese, churches are engaging in excellent children’s work and youth activities, as well as running drop-ins, lunch-clubs, food banks and street pastors, reaching out to some of the more vulnerable members of our society.

"Because the potential of just one person to cause terrible damage to the lives of children or vulnerable adults – and appalling collateral damage to the life of their families, friends and church community – is one that we must guard against with utmost vigilance.

"Could I therefore urge you to ensure that the national and diocesan policies and protocols on these pages are implemented and reviewed regularly in line with diocesan policy, while thanking you for every way in which your church is having a transformative effect on the lives of others."
