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
- seek to protect and respond well to those that have been abused.
If you have a safeguarding concern or query, your first port of call should be your Church Safeguarding Officer or your District Safeguarding Officer.
