Home Resources Safeguarding



Safeguarding means preventing harm to children and adults at risk by protecting them from abuse or neglect.

The Church in Wales is committed to safeguarding as an integral part of its life, mission and ministry.

The Church in Wales will:

  • promote the wellbeing of children and adults at risk
  • raise awareness of safeguarding within the Church
  • work to prevent abuse or harm from occurring
  • seek to protect and respond well to those that have been abused.

Safeguarding is everybody’s responsibility.
