The North Beltisloe Group of Parishes take the safeguarding of children and vulnerable adults seriously.

Most of the time at church we are like a big, happy, family. However, even in very happy families, people can have a bad day and even people we know and trust can upset us. We want to help everyone have good days all the time. We try to make sure that people who have jobs in the church always behave well and in a way that is helpful to you. We never want anyone or anything in church to frighten you, confuse you or worry you. It is important that you tell us if something is upsetting you or if you are feeling worried about something that’s happening or something somebody is doing. We have specially trained people who you can talk to and who you can ask for help. These people are good at safeguarding. This means that they look after everyone’s safety. Caring for people is a very important part of our Christian life.
