Safeguarding children and adults who are vulnerable is an important part of making our churches welcoming and safe spaces for everyone who comes in. On this page you can find out how we hope to do this.
The Methodist Church's safeguarding news and policies are available here.
The 'Creating Safer Space- Foundation Module' is a training session for office holders in the Methodist Church which is designed raise awareness of safeguarding concerns and equip participants to know what to do if they have concerns. The 'Refresher Module' is designed for people who have done the Foundation Module before and need to refresh and update their knowledge.
