St Peter’s, Didcot we are committed to:
- The care, nurture of, and respectful pastoral ministry with, all
children and all adults
- The safeguarding and protection of all children, young people and
adults when they are vulnerable
- The establishing of safe, caring communities which provide a
loving environment where there is a culture of ‘informed vigilance’ as to the
dangers of abuse.
carefully select and train all those with any responsibility within the Church,
in line with safer recruitment principles, including the use of Disclosure and
Barring Service criminal records checks, whether paid or volunteer positions.
We have a clear
reporting procedure in place and will challenge any abuse of power, especially by
anyone in a position of trust.
We work with anyone who has suffered abuse of
any kind, developing with him or her, an appropriate ministry of informed
pastoral care and support, including referral to the proper authorities or
supportive agencies, to any member of our church community known to be needing
support with caring for a child or adult.
