    Safeguarding Principles Policy

    Adults at Risk (Vulnerable Adults)

    This Safeguarding Principles Policy should be read and used in conjunction with Promoting a Safer Church Policy Statement which was approved by Diocesan Synod on 21/10/2017.

    This policy was adopted by Fountain of Life Church at the Church Council (CC) meeting held on 17th June 2023.

    It will be displayed in a prominent position, reviewed annually, and amended as necessary.

    1. We recognise that everyone has different levels of vulnerability and that each of us may be regarded as vulnerable at some time in our lives. It is the responsibility of all church members to do their best to prevent the physical, sexual, emotional or spiritual abuse or neglect of adults who are vulnerable, and to report abuse that is alleged or suspected.
    2. This church will observe Church of England guidelines with regard to Vulnerable Adults. It will support and resource workers who are appointed by the CC, and provide for them supervision as a way of maintaining good practice.
    3. Workers will be expected to undertake the Safeguarding Training that is offered by the Diocese and they may be required to obtain a DBS disclosure and complete a Confidential declaration before commencing their work.
    4. Responsibility for the appointment of workers shall rest with the CC.


    The Named Person appointed by the CC to oversee the implementation of this policy and

    to represent the concerns and views of Adults at Risk are Fiona Wilson and Rosemary Lovegrove-Smith
