As a family following Jesus, we take our responsibility to look after one another very seriously, just like He did. We do everything we can to ensure anyone that interacts with Grace Church is loved and protected. This particularly applies to those that might otherwise be more vulnerable, like children or adults with need of extra care or support. This also extends to protecting everyone’s privacy and data. Below you can find out more about our safeguarding and privacy policies.
Our staff and the volunteers that serve Grace Church work hard to create a safe environment for everyone. We are committed to the wellbeing and safety of everyone which is why safeguarding is a priority for us.
We have an appointed safeguarding co-ordinator as part of our paid staff team. They are responsible for overseeing any safeguarding concerns that arise. They are also responsible for overseeing child safeguarding at Grace Church and work with a wider team on things like policy, training and any issues that arise.
We also have appointed safeguarding leads for all areas of church life where applicable. Some of these are paid staff, some are volunteers. Our adult safeguarding lead is the point of contact for any safeguarding concerns relating to vulnerable adults or within ministries that don’t involve kids. They work closely with the safeguarding co-ordinator.
Finally, Grace Church Nottingham is also registered with Thirtyone:eight [link text to www.thirtyoneeight.org], a Christian safeguarding charity. If we have any safeguarding concerns we will always seek professional advice from their team.
