Safeguarding at St Giles' 

Safeguarding is at the heart of our Christian faith. We are all made unique and in the image of God.

 

‘Jesus came that we might have life and have it in abundance’ John 10 v 10.

 

St Giles’s works to encourage a safe environment for children and for adults at risk (formerly, vulnerable adults) who visit, worship or work at St Giles’ Cripplegate.

 

The PCC has adopted the Diocesan Safeguarding Policy “Towards a Safer Diocese’ (2018)” www.london.anglican.org/support/safeguarding/safeguarding-policy/
