Creating safe spaces for exploring faith in Jesus.
At Scripture Union, keeping children safe is of paramount importance, and the need to provide adequate care for children and young people is at the forefront of any event planning.
Our Safeguarding Policy is the key document that sets out our legal responsibilities and how we will fulfil them. It also lays out the procedures we will follow.
We take safeguarding seriously and want to help you (as parents, guardians, children and youth workers) as you help the children and young people you know, to better understand what safeguarding means for them. Here are some resources created by both Scripture Union and other organisations that you may find useful.
Please note that we take no responsibility for the content of external sites, so please do check content before showing to children.
Got a concern?
At Scripture Union we encourage and welcome anyone to raise a concern including our staff, volunteers, partners, the people, churches and communities we work with, our supporters as well as members of the public.
You can do this by contacting our Safeguarding Manager, Rachel Settatree by emailing [email protected] or calling her on 01908 856072.
