Promoting a Safer Church
The Parish of Holy Trinity, Skipton and St Augustine, Draughton welcomes children and young people and wants them to be safe when they are on church premises or attending a church run event. To this end, the PCC has adopted the Diocese of Leeds, ‘Promoting a Safer Church’ 2017.
We also recognise that everyone has different levels of vulnerability and that each of us may be regarded as vulnerable at some time in our lives. Therefore, the PCC has adopted the current Policy and Guidelines of the Diocese regarding the Safeguarding of Adults in the Parish.
