Safeguarding is at the centre of our faith, in our practice, in our worship, in our praying, and in our believing. In other words, safeguarding needs to become integral to the life of the Church rather than an appendage, with good safeguarding behaviours flowing naturally and intuitively. This requires recognition that safeguarding needs to move away from something that is in some respects external / imposed upon the Church, to something that flows from within the soul of the Church.
Diocese of Exeter aims to provide comprehensive safeguarding guidance, training and support to all those who require it. If you wish to share any safeguarding concerns with the Diocesan Safeguarding Team, please go to Safeguarding Contacts.
