Safeguarding in


the Benefice


As a Benefice, we are fully committed to ensuring the highest standards of behaviour and care in our work with children, young people and adults at risk.

Our Policy

The Benefice has adopted the Church in Wales Safeguarding Policy. This means, anyone in the Benefice, who works, volunteers or comes into close contact with children, young people and adults at risk needs to have an up to date Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) clearance and also has to have undertaken Safeguarding Training arranged by the Diocese.

Our Commitments

Our commitments are detailed on the Safeguarding Posters, displayed prominently in each of our church buildings.

Upcoming Training

Safeguarding training will be held in St. Basil's Church Hall at 6.30pm on Thursday 22nd March 2018. Contact Rev. Chris Stone or Helen Carey to confirm attendance.


If you have any queries about the policy, its application in the Benefice or need to arrange a DBS check or safeguarding training, please contact:
