Safeguarding

 

The Benefice of Broughton Gifford, Great Chalfield and Holt is committed to safeguarding children, young people and adults at risk to worship and grow in Christ safely. This is done in a coordinated and supported manner and involves the Parish Safeguarding Officer, the Staff Team and the Diocesan Safeguarding Team. Concerns about children, young people and adults at risk will be diligently and promptly responded to according to our procedures, recognising the sensitivity they may hold for those involved.

The Parochial Church Council of the three churches adopted 'Promoting A Safer Church' in September 2019, and reviews their safeguarding policies, procedures and practice annually.
