As a church, we aim to deliver the highest possible quality of care to everyone, especially our children, young people, and adults with care and support needs.


We expect all who attend Central Church, especially leaders, trustees and all who work with children, young people, or adults with care and support needs, to do their part to keep them safe and cared for in a way which upholds the dignity and value of the individual.


Central Church operates safeguarding policies and procedures that cover children, young people and adults with care and support needs. We expect workers to keep to the relevant policies and we give training and put in place oversight to ensure this happens. We follow a safe recruiting process for paid and volunteer workers, including DBS checks for those who are aged 18 and above.


If you have any concerns regarding the safety of a child, young person or adult with care and support needs please contact our Safeguarding team at [email protected]
