Welcome to Safeguarding
The Diocese of St Albans is committed to offering a warm and safe welcome to everyone who attends our churches, especially to children and vulnerable adults.
This is integral to our vision to be a place where people discover and deepen their sense of God’s love for them and are drawn to join in prayer, worship and the life of the church.
The Diocese of St Albans has adopted the national policies and Practice Guidance for Safeguarding within the Church of England and commended them to the deaneries and parishes for adoption and implementation.
Safeguarding is not just a matter of words. Where things go wrong, we put survivors first, strive to care for those who have been harmed and follow best practice, working with all statutory and other authorities to deal effectively with harm and to learn the lessons from every situation that will make our church and our world a safer place for all.
