Safeguarding Children and Adults at Risk
We work to the United Reformed Church Good Practice Policy and Procedures
Every Church is asked:
- To appoint a safeguarding coordinator
- Have a policy for safeguarding
- Ensure that all those working with children and young people are interviewed, know their role, are supported and have a DBS check
If we are to care for the children and young people we have, or hope to have, on our church premises, then all we do for their safety and well being helps us exercise that care.

Two copies of the new Good Practice-4 Handbook for Churches, has been sent to all Churches. Further copies are available to purchase.
Below is a sample local church safeguarding policy for children and adults at risk, which can be used as a starting point to help your church put your own policy in place.
