The Diocese of Newcastle, and the people in its parish churches, are absolutely committed to safeguarding children and young people, vulnerable adults and those who may be caught in abusive relationships.
We are determined to create safe environments, where children and young people are nurtured and protected; and where all people, and especially those who may be vulnerable for any reason, are able to worship and pursue their faith journey with encouragement and in safety.
We follow the national legal and procedural framework for safeguarding children and vulnerable adults, and Church of England policy and practice
