Safeguarding

All Nations is part of the Co-Mission network of churches and a brand new recognised FIEC church plant. The All Nations Elders & Trustees recognise the need to provide a safe environment and we are committed to protecting and promoting the welfare of those entrusted to our care.

We are committed to:

  1. Following the requirements of UK legislation in relation to safeguarding children & adults at risk and good practice recommendations.
  2. Exercising diligence in the appointment and & selection of all those who will work with children & adults at risk, ensuring workers and volunteers are DBS checked and approved and ensuring they adhere to the agreed procedures of our safeguarding policy.
  3. Supporting our Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL) & Deputy DSL in any action they may need to take in order to protect children or adults at risk.
  4. Support all in the organisation affected by abuse.

We recognise:

  1. Safeguarding is everyones responsibility.
  2. Children’s Social Services has lead responsibility for investigating all allegations or suspicions of abuse where there are concerns about a child; and Adult Safeguarding Services have lead responsibility for investigating all allegations or suspicions of abuse where there are concerns about an adult at risk.
  3. Where an allegation suggests a criminal offence may have been committed then the police should be contacted as a matter of urgency.

If you have any concerns for a child or an adult at risk, please contact:

Esther Raja (DSL) on esthersraja@gmail.com OR Helen Percy on hmpercy60@gmail.com.
