Safeguarding

Scartho Methodist Church

fully endorses the polices and comments shown below regarding the safeguarding of children, young people and vulnerable adults.

 

 

The aim of the Methodist Church Safeguarding policy is to create Christian communities of love and care, where good practice in this area becomes a way of life.

 

To enable churches to achieve the above aim, and in light of legislation and government guidance, the Methodist Church has produced the Methodist Safeguarding Handbook. It contains the latest policies and procedures which have been approved by the 2010 Methodist Conference and which came into effect on 1 January 2011.

The Methodist Church's safeguarding policies

 

 

 “There is a growing   understanding that protecting children, young people and vulnerable adults is at the core of our faith. Safeguarding is about creating churches that are a safe space for everyone; a space where children can flourish and adults can live up to their potential. It is about enabling everyone to come to Jesus without stumbling blocks of abuse, ignorance, fear, compassion fatigue or the failure to recognise the experiences that so many carry within our communities."
