This year marks the twentieth anniversary of the formation of the diocesan Child Safeguarding & Protection Service. Safeguarding Sunday takes place this weekend.
It is important to reflect on the journey that we as a parish and as a Diocese have been on over the last twenty years, especially the victims of abuse in our Church. It is also a time to reflect on the ongoing commitment by all to ensure the safety of children and vulnerable adults. A lot has been achieved; however, this work is never done. The safeguarding of children and vulnerable adults in our diocese is central to the Gospel values that we embrace on a daily basis.
