Safeguarding

The Cathedral recognises that the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults / adults at risk is paramount and that we have a duty of care when they are in our charge. We will do everything that we can do to provide a safe and caring environment whilst they attend our activities.

We will:

  • Treat all children, young people and vulnerable adults with respect and celebrate their achievements.
  • Recruit and select all those working with children, young people and vulnerable adults on our behalf in accordance with Diocesan Safer Recruitment Procedures.
  • Provide a Code of Conduct for all staff to include the assessment of risk for key roles when working with children, young people and vulnerable adults.
  • Respond to concerns and allegations without delay in accordance with Diocesan Safeguarding Procedures.

We are part of the Diocese of St Edmundsbury and Ipswich; the Diocese website has more information about Safeguarding.

The Cathedral has recently been audited (by the Social Care Institute for Excellence). Here is the report and associated action plan
