On this page of our website we bring together all of our policies and links in respect of the safeguarding of children and vulnerable adults.

As a Benefice we have adopted the House of Bishops' "Safeguarding Policy" and the House of Bishops' "Promoting a Safer Church Safeguarding Policy".

Our Parishes are committed to safeguarding children, young people and vulnerable adults to worship and grow in Christ safely. Click here to read our Safeguarding Policy for Beltingham with Henshaw. or our Safeguarding Policy for Haydon Bridge. If you wish to contact one of our Safeguarding Panel their details are below or on this poster.
