The Government’s legal requirements to safeguard and promote the welfare of children apply to churches which have Sunday Schools and related activities for persons up to eighteen years of age. Such churches must have a Safeguarding policy. On application the Trust will supply examples of Safeguarding Policy documents. Useful model policies can also be found on the Baptist Union website:
A number of churches use the Churches’ Child Protection Advisory Service (www.ccpas.co.uk
) for their guidance and assistance with obtaining police checks.
