Responsible Caring

The Church of England Safeguarding Children Policy ‘Protecting all God’s Children’, has as its first principle, “We are committed to the Safeguarding, care and nurture of the children within our church community”.

Within its Safeguarding Adults Policy ‘Promoting a Safe Church’, The Church of England’s first principle is, “we are committed to the respectful pastoral ministry of all adults within the church community”.

The Diocese of Truro wholeheartedly endorses this and wishes to provide support, advice and information to all those in its parishes who give of their time – both paid and voluntarily – to work with vulnerable adults and children.

Truro Diocesan policies, guidelines for good practice and procedures are contained in the document, Responsible Caring.
