Safeguarding Policy and Supporting Documents

This Diocese is committed to ensuring our communities of faith are safe and life-giving for all people. The following documents should be read and implemented by all clergy, members of vestries, and those in leadership positions working with children, young people and vulnerable adults. 


Scripture proclaims: "You shall be holy, for I the Lord your God am holy" (Lev 19.2). In all that we do as Christians we aspire to the example that Jesus Christ has set for us. At times this can be extremely challenging. To help licence holders navigate the demands of pastoral ministry the Diocese advocates familiarity with Title D and provides training.
