Safeguarding

We are committed to the safeguarding, care and nurture of everyone within our community.

The Church of England will:

  • Promote a safer environment and culture
  • Safely recruit and support all those with any responsibility related to children and vulnerable adults within the Church
  • Respond promptly to every safeguarding concern or allegation 
  • Care pastorally for victims/survivors of abuse and other affected persons
  • Care pastorally for those who are the subject of concerns or allegations of abuse and other affected persons
  • Respond to those that may pose a present risk to others

 

These policy commitments are based on our five foundations:

  • Gospel
  • Human rights and the law
  • Core principles
  • Good safeguarding practice
  • Learning from the past

If you are concerned that someone you know is at risk of, or is being abused, or presents a risk to others, please contact Ceri Hibbert on  07754 559043 or  safeguarding@leominsterpriory.org.uk

You can also seek advice from the Diocesan Safeguarding Adviser, or report the matter to your Local Authority Social Care Services or the Police. If in doubt, please don't hesitate to call the police.
