As Christians we believe that each person is made in the image of God and is of infinite worth and value. We are charged to love and care for each other. This is particularly true where the most vulnerable members of our community are concerned whether they are children, young people or adults.

Safeguarding is about creating a safe environment where all can flourish and know themselves to be of worth. We are committed to doing that. Each church, group or activity will have a Safeguarding policy and seek to work with best practice.

For questions concerning Safeguarding send an email with the title ‘Safeguarding’ to the District Safeguarding Officer safeguarding@chestokemethodists.com 

There are several documents regarding Safeguarding on our District download page.
