We take Safeguarding of children and vulnerable adults very seriously here at Trinity Church Buxton. All our leaders have Enhanced DBS clearance and undergo Safeguarding training.

We are committed to Safeguarding Children, Young People, Victims/perpetrators of Domestic Abuse and Vulnerable Adults.

The Church Council has adopted the Church of England’s policies and best practice on safeguarding which may be found on the Church of England’s website.

The Church Council has adopted the House of Bishops’ ‘Promoting a Safer Church: Safeguarding Policy Statement’.
