Policy Statement for the Safeguarding of Children and Vulnerable Adults

The PCC of St Lawrence, Chobham with St Saviour, Valley End adopted the current safeguarding policy at a PCC meeting held on 9th May 2019.

The policy is available to view on the diocesan website, we will ensure that any future updates are recorded in the PCC minutes.

As members of the PCC we are committed to the support, nurture, and protection of all, especially the young and vulnerable in our church community.

  • We will ensure that all who work with children, young people and adults who may be at risk are appropriately recruited, supported and trained for the role.
  • We will respond without delay to every concern raised that a child, young person or vulnerable adult may have been harmed, or be at risk from harm, or about the behaviour of an adult or child.
  • We will ensure that pastoral care is made available to all members of our church community who are, or have been, involved in a safeguarding situation, regardless of their individual involvement or when the situation occurred.

Our parish safeguaring policy adheres to the policy adopded by the Diocese of Guildford, which can be found here.
