Safeguarding is not something that’s put upon us, but is an integral part of our faith –
responding well to those whose experience has been difficult or painful is what Jesus
did and so we should seek to follow him and do that too.
We must not be afraid to raise concerns. The best interests of the child or adult at risk are always paramount.
Proof or evidence is not required to raise a concern. A concern is simply letting the appropriate person know that you are concerned about the safety, health or well being of a child or vulnerable adult.
