SAFEGUARDING

Promoting A Safer Church

Safeguarding is important to all our churches in the Worsley Parish. We aim to create safe environments, where children and young people are nurtured and protected; and where all people, and especially those who may be vulnerable for any reason, are able to worship and pursue their faith journey with encouragement and in safety.

The care and protection of children, young people and adults involved in Church activities is the responsibility of everyone who participates in the life of the Church.

For more information on church safeguarding and further contacts please visit the Diocese of Manchester website and download our safeguarding poster.
