An introduction to Safeguarding at St Anne’s Church

As with other organisations with responsibilities for children or vulnerable adults, the Church of England has clear guidance and monitoring arrangements for ensuring that our church is a safe and welcoming place for children, young people and adults with vulnerabilities. Many volunteers contribute to the life of the church in Ellerker. Those who have official roles, for instance the Church Wardens and the members of the Parochial Church Council, must be safely recruited. This includes a 3 yearly Enhanced DBS check and a requirement to undertake and refresh the Church of England’s Safeguarding training, appropriate to that role. The Parish Safeguarding Officer, who is appointed by but independent of the Parochial Church Council, oversees and monitors this process and keeps records. Our progress in implementing good safeguarding practice as specified in The Church of England’s House of Bishops Parish Safeguarding Handbook, is monitored by the Safeguarding Team at the Diocese of York.

At the moment there are no specific activities at St Anne’s for children, young people or vulnerable adults. This is likely to change as the congregation and community recover fully from the impact of the pandemic and when our new Vicar is in place. Anyone leading new activities will undertake the necessary safer recruitment and training.

Claire Wood is currently the Parish Safeguarding Officer for the Benefice of All Saints’ Church, South Cave, St Anne’s Church, Ellerker and St Mary’s Church, Broomfleet. Claire was involved with Adventurers at All Saints’ Church and Busy Bible Club at St Anne’s Church for 22 years. Her professional career was in health and her voluntary career has included roles in the justice, education, charity and local government sectors.
