Safeguarding

If you have a safeguarding concern, however small, please speak to our Safeguarding Officer, Antonia, or email her at safeguarding@christchurch.nl

 

Our Safeguarding Policy

Christ Church Amsterdam takes safeguarding very seriously.

Anyone who wishes to work with children, young people or vulnerable adults, or who holds any position of responsibility in our church, must have a background check and must complete safeguarding training. Our safeguarding policy is on display in the church and a copy of the document can be found here.

At Christ Church Amsterdam we follow the Safeguarding Policy guidelines of the Church of England, including the policies of the Diocese in Europe to which this Chaplaincy belongs. Full details can be found o­n the Diocesan website here.

If you have a safeguarding concern, however small, please speak to me, a chaplain, a lay assistant, or the Diocesan Safeguarding Team as soon as possible.
If anyone discloses a concern to you, please listen attentively, write everything down as you heard it as soon as possible afterwards, and share the disclosure with the Chaplain and / or the Diocesan Safeguarding Team immediately.

Safeguarding is everyone’s concern, and by working together we can ensure that our community is safe for everyone.

Thank you for your support and understanding.
