At St. Mary’s Church Lutterworth, we are committed to the Health, Safety and Welfare of our members of staff, our volunteers and all who may use our premises or services. Our aim is to ensure that our church building, churchyard and associated buildings are a safe environment for all.
So far as is reasonably practicable we will provide and maintain safe and healthy working conditions, equipment and systems of work, and we will provide such information, consultation, training and supervision as is required for this purpose.
We have strict procedures to ensure that everyone is kept safe. We are particularly concerned to care for the vulnerable amongst us. All our children’s groups are led by trained team members with appropriate background checks.
Any policy will be unable to cover every eventuality and so we encourage all our volunteers to read and follow the full Safeguarding Handbook from the National Safeguarding Team of the Church of England.
If you have any questions or concerns, please talk to:
