Statement of safeguarding principles

We at St Philip and St James take the safeguarding of children, young people and adults very seriously.

Safeguarding means the action the church takes to promote a safer culture. This means we will promote the welfare of children, young people and adults We work to prevent abuse from occurring, seek to protect those that are at risk of being abused and respond well to those that have been abused. We will take care to identify where a person may present a risk to others, and offer support to them whilst taking steps to mitigate such risks.
