Safeguarding

Safeguarding is everybody’s business.

All Saints Centre for Mission and Ministry is committed to:

  • The care and nurture of, and respectful pastoral ministry with, all children, young people and adults.
  • The safeguarding and protection of all children, young people and adults.
  • The establishing of safe, caring communities which provide an environment where victims of abuse can report or disclose abuse
    and where they can find support and best practice that contributes to the prevention of abuse.

In particular, All Saints aims to:

  • Reduce the risk of harm to vulnerable people (children and adults) from abuse or other types of exploitation, whilst listening to and
    supporting individuals.
  • Ensure that safeguarding is everybody’s business, with this institution playing its part in preventing and detecting neglect and abuse.
  • Ensure that arrangements are in place locally to protect those least able to protect themselves.
  • As a training organisation, to be involved in good safeguarding thinking and practice in our teaching, supervision and formation for
    ministry.
