We are really fortunate to be able to employ a Children's Youth and Family Worker who works during the week in our local schools as well as running many of our groups and activities. All our volunteers have been DBS checked and many have completed their Safeguarding C1 training. Risk assessments for groups are submitted to the Parochial Church Council for approval on a regular basis.
