Safeguarding

Safeguarding of Children and Young People

All Saints Parish is committed to building a culture of safeguarding of children and young people. Accordingly, Volunteers involved as PSSOs, Acolytes, Ministers of the Word, Extraordinary Ministers of Communion, Wardens, Catechists, Little Church/Children’s Liturgy leaders, youth ministries such as Encounter, Elevate and Antioch and in Outreach must:

  • provide a Working With Children (WWC) number for verification by the Parish.

  • complete an appropriate Safeguarding Training course, followed by Refresher Training every three years.

  • sign a Code of Conduct Form.

  • complete a Volunteer Registration Form.

Other volunteers no longer need to provide a WWC number for their role. However, in the ongoing quest to develop awareness of Safeguarding and its significance

across the Parish, some volunteers must still:

  • complete an appropriate Safeguarding Training course, followed by Refresher Training every three years

  • sign a Code of Conduct Form.

  • complete a Volunteer Registration Form.

Dedicated noticeboards in the church and Parish facilities display updated information.
