The Parish Trust is committed to being an organisation which is safe for everyone.

It is our heart to ensure that The Parish Trust is an organisation that people feel they can trust and be comfortable to be involved with, and a safe space to disclose safeguarding issues.

Therefore, we prioritise good safeguarding practice across all of our activities and we want to ensure that an appropriate and timely response is given to any safeguarding concerns.

Our approach is governed by six key principles:

  • Our safeguarding policy and procedures will put the wishes, needs and well-being of the child/desired outcomes of the adult at risk first
  • We will be alert to the needs of children/adults at risk (including any potential or suspected abuse or risk of abuse or harm) and be proactive in understanding what action we should take
  • We will share appropriate information and ensure direct access is available to advice and to discuss any concerns about a child/adult
  • We will train staff and volunteers to be able to use their professional judgment to work with the child’s/adult’s needs and personal outcomes
  • We will work in a multi-agency and co-operative way, record decisions appropriately and regularly review progress in the area of safeguarding

Safeguarding at The Parish Trust will be actively supported by the Senior Staff of the charity and the Board of Trustees to achieve the desired outcomes for the individual.

Parental Consent

As part of our commitment to keep children and young people safe, we require all adults with parental responsibility to consent to their child being involved with the charity.

There may be occasions such as drop-in youth events where children may not have explicit consent from parents/guardians at the point of contact, but we will endeavour to contact the parent/guardian of any child to obtain ongoing consent as part of our drive for best practise in Safeguarding.

Please note that in order to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus and to enjoy the Easter Holidays, The Parish Trust will be closed from Thursday 28th March 2024 and will reopen on Monday 8th April 2024. We wish all our stakeholders and beneficiaries a Happy Easter.
