Safe, caring communities
The Church of England is committed to the care, nurture of, and respectful pastoral ministry for all children, for all young people, and for all adults. As part of this, Old Church, in turn, has developed policies for the protection of children, the safeguarding of vulnerable adults, and in order to respond well to concerns about sexual abuse and survivors of sexual abuse. Smethwick Old Church Child Protection Policy has been revised and up-dated for 2017 and can be read by clicking on the link. It can also be found on the Documents page and in hard copy in the church. In addition you can find through the following links Old Church Policy on the Safeguarding of Adults, and Old Church Policy on Responding Well to Concerns about Sexual Abuse. These documents provide information on what you should do if you have concerns about any of these matters.
