St Philip’s takes the responsibility of Safeguarding very seriously, and follows the advice and guidance of the Diocese of Chester
‘We encourage an environment where all people, but especially those who may be at risk for any reason, are able to worship and follow their faith journey with encouragement and in safety’.
Safer recruitment is an essential part of safeguarding and therefore we follow the diocesan safer recruitment policy for all workers and volunteer roles.
In addition all roles requiring criminal record checks are made via Thirty One Eight ( formally known as CCPAS) with whom the Diocese of Chester has partnered to provide it’s Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS)
