The United Reformed Church (URC) is committed to safeguarding in every area

of its life and ministry. Safeguarding is the action taken to promote and protect the well-being and human rights of individuals.


This means we will:


  • Do all we can to create and maintain a safe and caring environment for all people.

  • Respond promptly and effectively to any form of abuse and neglect, including reporting abuse to statutory agencies when necessary.

  • Seek to prevent abuse in any form from occurring.

  • We will seek to identify individuals who may pose a risk to others and take necessary actions to minimise risk whilst supporting these individuals in our communities when safe to do so.
