Safeguarding at St Nicholas Church, Wickham

St Nicholas Church, Wickham takes its responsibility for children, young people and vulnerable adults very seriously and their welfare is paramount in all areas of church life.

Clergy, lay staff and volunteers who work within the organisation and/or as part of the congregation are required to follow good policy and practice to ensure that children, young people and vulnerable adults are safeguarded and nurtured physically, emotionally and spiritually. High professional standards are maintained in all worship and all pastoral, counselling, educational and recreational situations involving children, young people and vulnerable adults.

To facilitate this all clergy, lay staff, volunteers and members of the congregation working with or seeking to work with children, young people and/or vulnerable adults are properly recruited, screened, trained and supported.

The church’s Safeguarding Policy statement agreed on by the PCC in May 2018 is below. The church’s Safeguarding Representative is Julia Jordan who can be contacted on juliajordan285@btinternet.com or 01489 890007 to answer any specific queries.
