Creating a Safe Space
We agree that all people have the right to:
- live in a safe secure, stable and loving environment
- be protected from all forms of harm, including abuse and exploitation
- have a voice, and to be heard
- be valued and respected
- be treated as a unique individual with particular needs and particular gifts.
It is important that each Parish creates a safeguarding culture in which this can happen.This is the responsibility of everyone.
Allegations of abuse and suspected abuse MUST be reported to the proper authorities for investigation.
