Safeguarding at Northwood Church

.
St John the Baptist Church takes safeguarding very seriously. We actively promote and pursue Portsmouth Diocese’s Safer Recruitment Policy, whereby everyone who wishes to work for the church with children, young people or vulnerable adults who may be at risk of harm to first undergo a DBS (Disclosure and Barring System) check before they can take up their positions. They are also required to attend regular training.
.
Our policy statement is updated annually and can be seen displayed in the porch of the church.
