We seek to safeguard the welfare of all people, regardless of age, who come into contact with the Church and its organisations. It is the responsibility of each individual participating in the life of the Church to prevent the physical, sexual or emotional abuse of children and vulnerable adults, and to act appropriately if abuse is discovered or suspected or when good practice and guidelines are not being followed.
