Here at Hope we believe that the welfare and safety of all children and vulnerable adults is paramount. As members of the church, we commit ourselves to the nurturing, protection and safekeeping of all.

It is the responsibility of each one of us to prevent the physical, sexual and emotional abuse of children and vulnerable adults, and to report any abuse discovered or suspected.

All workers and volunteers who work with children, young people and vulnerable adults are required to have a CRB check.

The church is committed to supporting, resourcing and training those who work with children and vulnerable adults and to provide supervision.

Each worker must know the recommendations, and agree to undertake and observe them.

We are a member of the Churches Child Protection Advisory Service CCPAS.

If you have any queries regarding our vulnerable adult and child protection policies, then please contact our Child Protection Officers Jo Rees or Emma Lewis via the church Admin Office.
