Safeguarding Children


Child Protection Policy

Anyone who welcomes one little child like this in my name welcomes me” M 18:5

Kells & Girley Parish holds a trusted place in the community, and is involved with both children and young people.  We take seriously our responsibility to promote the well being of every person in our community of whatever age.  All members of the parish, especially children are entitled to take a full part in the activities of the parish.  Every possible step will be taken to ensure that, while they do so, they will be treated with care and respect and they are safe from every kind of harm.

Kells & Girley Parish will endeavour to safeguard the welfare of those who work with children and vulnerable adults by ensuring that they receive appropriate training and support.
