“Safeguarding is everyone’s responsibility and our churches work every day of the year to ensure they are safe places for all and it is always good to recognise this important commitment. Do support Safeguarding Sunday on October 13, being promoted by thirtyone:eight, both to raise awareness and remind everyone why safeguarding is so important. There are also safeguarding resources and prayers, designed for use in worship on the Church of England website.”
Bishop Peter Hancock, the Church of England’s lead safeguarding bishop
thirtyone:eight is an independent Christian charity which helps individuals, organisations, charities, faith and community groups to protect vulnerable people from abuse.
