Protecting All God’s Children

Protecting All God's Children

On Sunday, March 24, 2013, St George’s held a special meeting with Sunday School teachers, youth workers and their helpers on the topic of “Protecting All God’s Children”. It was led by Dr Jill Ann Jenkins, a child clinical psychologist, in line with the official safeguarding policies of the Church of England.

The session covered abuse of a child, misuse of power and betrayal of trust, at four levels: physical, sexual, emotional and neglect.

The church takes these issues very seriously and is working diligently to ensure that St George’s is fully compliant with the best practices as laid out by the Principles of the House of Bishops’ Policy for Safeguarding Children. We want to make sure the church is a safe, trusting, loving environment for families and children.

Questions can be addressed to St George’s Safeguarding Officer, who is currently Claire.
