Safeguarding

Safeguarding is the responsibility of everyone within the life of the Methodist Church. 

The Methodist Church is committed to safeguarding as an integral part of its life and ministry. Safeguarding is about the action the Church takes to promote a safer culture. This means we will: promote the welfare of children, young people and adults; work to prevent abuse from occurring; and seek to protect and respond well to those that have been abused.
