The Methodist Church takes Safeguarding very seriously. We have trained Safeguarding Officers in each of our churches, together with a Circuit Co-ordinator and a District Safeguarding Officer. All of our paid staff, Clergy, local church officers, Local Preachers and those working with children, young people and vulnerable adults are required to have on-going Safeguarding Training and a current DBS check.
For any Safeguarding concerns or questions you might have, in the first instance contact your local Church Minister or church Safeguarding Officer. They would be interested to talk to anyone who has concerns about any matter within our churches and Circuit. You can also contact the District Safeguarding Officer or The Methodist Church Safeguarding Team.
