ST JOHN'S CHURCH SAFEGUARDING STATEMENT

Every person has a value and dignity which comes directly from the creation of male and female in God’s own image and likeness. Christians see this potential as fulfilled by God’s re-creation of us in Christ. This implies a duty to value all people as bearing the image of God and therefore to protect them from harm.

  • We accept and endorse the principles set out in ‘Safeguarding in the Diocese of London’.

  • We commit ourselves to nurture, protect and safeguard all our members, particularly children, young people and vulnerable adults.

  • We recognise that safeguarding is the responsibility of the whole church community.

  • We undertake to exercise proper care in the selection, appointment, training and support of those working in both paid and voluntary positions with children or vulnerable adults, including the use of Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) disclosures and making appropriate referrals to the Disclosure and Barring Service.

  • We will respond without delay to concerns or allegations that a child or vulnerable adult may have been harmed, cooperating with the police and social care services in any investigation.

  • We will challenge any abuse of power by anyone in a position of trust.

  • We will seek to offer pastoral care and support to anyone who has suffered abuse, developing with them appropriate pastoral support.

  • We will seek to offer pastoral care and support, including supervision and referral to the proper authorities, to any member of our church community known to have offended against a child, young person or vulnerable adult.

If you have any concerns please contact our Safeguarding Officer.

Why?

In Southall, women were facing barriers to accessing support and services to improve their wellbeing and mental health, because of poor mental health, loneliness or isolation from others in their faith communities, lack of connectedness with other local women with whom they might share problems, limited knowledge of where to access support or counselling, hesitation to speak to those outside cultural or faith groups about problems due to stigma, and a lack of personal skills and resources concerning what can be done to help.

The Listening Space is run by women with training in therapeutic skills needed to support other women in their community, such as newly arrived female migrants. This includes practical skills such as listening, communication, signposting, and also self-care and problem solving too.
