What is Safeguarding?
Safeguarding is a term used to denote measures to protect the health, well-being and human rights of individuals, which allow people - especially children, young people and adults who are in danger of harm - to live free from abuse, harm and neglect.
We are both obliged by regulation and as part of our Quaker witness to safeguard those who need it within our Area Meeting.
Roles within our meetings, such as Pastoral Care Friends and those who work with our children's meetings, are now appointed according to clear guidelines which are consistent throughout the Quaker organisation in Britain.
