Safeguarding - information and advice

As Christians we take special care when in situations involving young people or vulnerable adults.

The latest Safeguarding requirements under the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) can be found here on The Churches Agency for Safeguarding website.  DBS checks remain free for volunteers and the fee is £44 for employees. All old forms should be destroyed.

More general information is available from the Methodist Church website Safeguarding page.
