Safeguarding Resources for Churches
The Baptists Together (Baptist Union of Great Britain) website has a number of resources to help equip churches to have an effective approach to safeguarding, please click on this link or the image to view the resources available.
Our Association Safeguarding Team offer additional support to churches from dealing with reported safeguarding issues, investigating safeguarding concerns to helping churches write their safeguarding policies.
The Association have a team who can help with the issue of Safeguarding both for children and adults at risk. We are able to offer training to a church or group of churches to make sure that all working with children and those in leadership in the church have the appropriate level of awareness. We would strongly recommend that all churches keep up to date via the Baptist Union of Great Britain Safeguarding webpage - http://www.baptist.org.uk/safeguarding.
