Safeguarding at New Life Church
Children and young people play a big part in the life of New Life Church. Our children’s and youth ministries include groups on a Sunday morning, children’s/ youth clubs and small groups mid week, Messy Church, schools work and residential trips. Whatever we do, our desire is to provide a safe environment where each person can be valued, supported and have the opportunity to grow in their journey with God.
How we approach Safeguarding is one aspect of providing a safe environment. We review our policies and working practices on a regular basis and safeguarding is a regular item at staff and volunteer meetings and also at the charity trustees meetings. We take advice and attend training from specialists such as the Churches’ Child Protection Advisory Service (CPPAS) and Cheshire East Local Safeguarding Children Board (LSCB).
Our commitment to safeguarding is also evident in our “outstanding” ofsted rated nursery, which operates within its own dedicated space of the Danesford Centre. Due to the specific nature of the nursery, it has it’s own policies and working practices.
