Parish Safeguarding Policy Statement

Parish of St. Peter (Anglican), Jaffa

St Peter's has adopted robust safeguarding policies, and in particular we are committed to:

  • the safeguarding of all children, young people and vulnerable adults
  • carefully selecting and training paid and voluntary staff who might come into contact with children or vulnerable adults, using Criminal Record background checks amongst other tools, to check their suitability
  • responding without delay to every complaint made which suggests that an adult, child or young person may have been harmed
  • cooperating fully with the police, local authority and any other appropriate statutory body in any investigation
  • ministering appropriately to anyone, child or adult, who has experienced abuse
  • extending pastoral care to those known to have offended against children or vulnerable adults whilst ensuring that children and vulnerable adults are protected from them

 The Parish Safeguarding Officer (PSO) is (temporarily):
