About our Safeguarding Policy

Safeguarding is a priority for us. We therefore provide an excellent level of care for kids. We are members of the Churches Child Protection Advisory Service (CCPAS) and have adopted their Safeguarding policy for use within our church. If you're interested in the policy it can be sent to you, just drop us an email. All Kids' leaders have gone through a screening process, such as the Disclosure and Barring Service, and all leaders are given training and support to equip them for children's work.
