PARISH SAFEGUARDING REPRESENTATIVE


Now that I have been appointed to this role by the Reverend Jane Curtis and the P.C.C. I felt it was appropriate to write an appraisal of my role.


I have now attended the basic training sessions in the autumn of 2017 which has prepared me for this important role.

The safeguarding policy and procedures are already well established in our Church and set down by our diocesan advisor in Salisbury.

I need to ensure that the Vicar and P.C.C. are kept updated of any changes to policy and procedure as advised by our Salisbury advisor.

Ensure that information on safeguarding policy is available to read in the Church, Church Hall and Church Croft, and importantly that other organisations which regularly use our church premises for activities involving children and adults have safeguarding procedures in place.


The most relevant function of my role, however, is to receive, with the Vicar, any concerns of abuse towards or vulnerability about children or adults in the parish and ensure that advice is sought and a proper referral is made to the Diocesan Safeguarding Advisor.

Remember that we all have a responsibility to be observant and to report any concerns or worries concerning possible abuse or in-appropriate behaviour towards our Church people.
