Protecting the vulnerable

Everybody has the right to be safe from danger and from anyone who might harm them. In Clifton Parish, we believe that all children and teenagers should be protected from danger and harm. The church also believes that there are some grown ups who need to be protected from danger and harm. There are some people who need help because they might try to harm others. The church wants to make sure that anyone who takes part in any activity in church is safe.

What is Safeguarding?

Safeguarding means keeping people safe from harm, abuse and/or neglect. . ‘Abuse’ is when someone does something to a person that can cause harm. It could be emotional and/or physical harm. ‘Neglect’ is when someone is not being given the care and support that they need to live their life. If you would like to talk to somebody about feeling safe and being safe, please contact our Parish Safeguarding Representative on 07562 990371, email [email protected] or contact the Diocesan Safeguarding Adviser on 07551 124951 or call 01904 966524.
