Safeguarding handbook

Download the handbook

The Safeguarding Handbook should be read alongside Safer Environment & Activities (2019). This has been produced by the national Church to provide practical advice to parishes, helping them to run their day-to-day activities as safely as possible.

You can find other resources for parishes, such as the porch poster Promoting a Safer Church on the Church of England safeguarding resources page. Any hard copies of these resources should be ordered through Church House Publishing.
