What is Safeguarding?

As Christians we are charged to love and care for each other. This is particularly true where the most vulnerable members of our community are concerned.

Children and young people have specific needs, which can be met by the Church if its members respond to the call to be Christ's people, living in his way. This means living in today's world amongst its problems and challenges, recognising that some of these will be challenges for the church itself.

Safeguarding is about preventing the abuse of children and young people and promoting their welfare. The aim of the Methodist Church Safeguarding policy is to create Christian communities of love and care, where good practice in this area becomes a way of life.
