Faith Groups

Faith groups and Safeguarding Children

All organisations that work with or come into contact with children should have safeguarding polices and procedures to ensure that every child, regardless of their age, gender, religion or ethnicity, can be protected from harm.

Setting up and following good safeguarding policies and procedures means children are safe from adults and other children who might pose a risk.

The information and advice on these pages was provided by the Safe Network service which closed on 1 April 2016.

NSPCC has produced a series of films on how to protect children within religious or faith settings. They are aimed at people working in faith settings and places of worship across the UK, to help them keep children safe, and can be found here
