Wheatley URC Safeguarding

It is our aim to ensure that protecting people from abuse, harm or neglect is central to our culture. We have adopted a policy that clearly sets out how we will do this, providing procedures for promoting safeguarding, preventing abuse and protecting children, adults at risk and staff.

Go to Wheatley URC Safeguarding Policy based on  URC guidance on safeguarding ‘Good Practice 6’’ and including Key contacts in the case of concern.

We have appointed a Safeguarding Coordinator and a deputy to oversee the policy, to ensure appropriate safeguarding training is offered and to be a first point of contact should concerns arise. Contact the Safeguarding Co ordinator.

SafeguardingTraining is provided by by Wessex Synod of the URC and the level of training required for various roles in the church is defined in this flowchart.
