St Anne’s URC is committed to safeguarding in every area of its life and ministry. Safeguarding is the action taken to promote and protect the well-being and human rights of individuals.
This means we will:

  • Do all we can to create and maintain a safe and caring environment for all people;
  • Respond promptly and effectively to any form of abuse and neglect, including reporting abuse
    to statutory agencies when necessary;
  • Seek to prevent abuse in any form from occurring. We will seek to identify individuals who
    may pose a risk to others and take necessary actions to minimise risk whilst supporting these
    individuals in our communities when safe to do so.

If you wish to discuss a safeguarding concern, please contact the Church Safeguarding Co-ordinator {David Croall – [email protected]}. Alternatively you may contact the Synod Safeguarding Officer {Yvette Robinson – [email protected]}
