The EFCC recommend the expertise of
Christian Safeguarding Services
Run by Paul Harrison (an elder at Grace Church, Loughborough), Christian Safeguarding Services supports churches and faith-based organisations with policy development, bespoke training and consultancy services.
They recommend that every church has a written Safeguarding Policy that is available to everyone, including the public.
However, to produce a written Policy takes many hours of discussion, questioning and rewrites before it is reasonable and practical. The CSS website includes free resources that will help you develop your churches safeguarding policy.
We hope this has been helpful and encourages you to take the necessary steps to protect yourselves. Please feel free to contact me if EFCC can be of further help.
