We have a full child protection policy which can be requested from admin@totnesunitedfree.org.uk

We recognise that our work with children and young people is the responsibility of the whole church. It is the responsibility of each of us to protect and safeguard the welfare of children and young people entrusted to the church’s care and to report any abuse discovered or suspected.

The Trustees and Leadership Team have the spiritual oversight of the church and have the responsibility to ensure that:

Children’s workers are given support and training in developing safe, caring practices in their work with children.
There is a system for dealing with concerns about possible abuse.
