Our commitment to Safeguarding


As the Leadership, we recognise the need to provide a safe and caring environment for children, young people and vulnerable adults. We acknowledge that children, young people and vulnerable adults can be the victims of physical, sexual and emotional abuse, and neglect.


As a Leadership we have therefore adopted the procedures set out in this safeguarding policy in accordance with statutory guidance.


The policy and appendices are based on the ten ‘Safe and Secure’ safeguarding standards published by the Churches ‘Child Protection Advisory Service (CCPAS) and have been prepared in line with our leadership team’s commitment to Safeguarding.


The Leadership undertakes to:


  • Endorse and follow all national and local safeguarding legislation and procedures, in addition to the international convention.
  • Provide on-going safeguarding training for all its workers and will regularly review the operational guidelines attached.
  • Support the Safeguarding Coordinator (s) in their work and in any action they may need to take in order to protect children and vulnerable adults.
  • File a copy of the policy and practice guidelines with our leadership of The Healing Bus.
  • Ensure our policy document is available to all our volunteers.




*Throughout this policy document, ‘Leadership’ refers to any body of individuals with overall responsibility for the organisation.
