The church recognises its responsibilities in safeguarding all children, young people and adults at risk, regardless of gender, ethnicity or ability.
As members of Bluntisham Baptist Church we fully commit ourselves to the nurturing, protection and safekeeping of all associated with the church and will pray for them regularly. In pursuit of this, we commit ourselves to this Safeguarding policy (see below) and to the development of sound procedures to ensure we implement our policy well.
