Safeguarding at St Wilfs

At St Wilfrid’s the PCC, Wardens and Clergy are committed to doing all we can to ensure that the church and its various events comply with safeguarding best practice. This goes further than requiring that all persons in positions of authority or persons having contact with children and vulnerable adults are CRB checked. We are seeking to develop and maintain a culture that is aware of the issues at stake; have the relevant training to be part of the solution rather than the problem; and where people know who to contact and where to look to find helpful information. 

We subscribe to the safeguarding policy of the Diocese of Chichester. (Click  HERE to access the policy and other helpful documents)

As a further help in getting the message of safeguarding out to our members and visitors, this page on our website has been introduced.
