Protecting the vulnerable is at the very heart of the Christian faith. Our safeguarding work in church is an expression of God’s kindness and compassion and of our commitment to the gospel. This website presents our parishes with advice, information and resources that help parishes understand how to achieve the best possible standards of safeguarding. In addition, within this website you will find the Church of England’s safeguarding policy and practice guidance documents, all of which have been adopted by the Diocese of Chichester and which we wholeheartedly endorse and commend to you for your attention.
