St Andrew’s Kinson places its responsibilities surrounding the safeguarding of children, young people, and adults who may be at risk as a top priority. To that end, we are committed to working in partnership with the Diocese of Salisbury, to ensure that we work in accordance with best practice at all times.
Our Parish Safeguarding Policy (PSP) and the St Andrew's Safeguarding Handbook (SASH) can be accessed below.
At St Andrew's Kinson, Safeguarding isn’t an added extra; it is part and parcel of what we do. Churches are connected with so many people through their community groups, social action, worship and other activities. It is therefore vital that they do everything they can to be safe and welcoming to all.
