At Edward Road Baptist Church we recognise the need to protect, nurture and support those who come to our premises, particularly children and those who are vulnerable. As a Church we have a policy which is enacted with any organisation that use the premises.
For this purpose we have the following safeguarding policy in place. The Policy Statement that it includes is read annually by all members at the Annual General Meeting.
We have also appointed Peggy Gouthwaite as the trustee responsible for Safeguarding and Carol Smith as the designated person for safeguarding.
