Safeguarding Support & Training

Helping equip you to make disciples of Jesus

We believe safeguarding policies and procedures are an expression of the good news of Jesus.

Safeguarding is the practice and procedures we undertake in our church communities with the aim of providing safe environments for all, including ministers, other paid workers and volunteers, as well as for the protection of adults, young people and children from harm, abuse or neglect. Every church should adopt a safeguarding policy and have in place up-to-date procedures enabling safeguarding to be a priority in their church context.

Webnet works with Baptists Together in providing information and training so that Baptist churches can maintain safe environments for all. They have a collection of forms, model procedures, policies and service ideas in the Resource Library on the Baptist Together website.
