Providing a safe and secure environment for children, young people and vulnerable adults
All Nations Christian Centre seeks to provide a safe and secure environment for all the children, young people and vulnerable adults who participate in our programs and activities. Our goal is to protect them from incidents of misconduct or inappropriate behaviour while also protecting our staff and volunteers (workers) from false accusations.
The safeguarding coordinator is Debbie Schofield.
The deputy safeguarding coordinators are Claire Gulliver (children) and Esther Wise (vulnerable adults).
If you have any concerns or worries about a child, young person or vulnerable adult within the church, please speak to either Debbie, Claire or Esther with your concerns.
We are currently supported through Thirtyone:eight (formally the Church Child Protection Advisory Service) which provides support and advice when we need it and also facilitates our DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service) checks.
