St Paul's Chichester

Safeguarding

We are SQP Level One Complaint.

As a church we take our safeguarding responsibilities towards children and vulnerable adults seriously and endeavour to ensure that all those within our congregation can enjoy our services in a safe way.  We have a defined, robust recruitment policy for both paid staff and the many volunteers that are so essential to the smooth running of our church activities.  We also review the latest guidance issued by the relevant church and statutory agencies and implement their recommendations on a timely basis. The PCC has adopted the House of Bishop’s Promoting a Safer Church; Safeguarding Policy Statement.
