Safeguarding

Safeguarding is everyone’s business. Willesden NTCG is a place of worship where all are welcomed, and it is important to ensure that all individuals are both protected and feel safe.  Our Safeguarding policy, adopted from the National Testament Church of God, is now available for all, especially for leaders and workers.

10 Standards for Creating Safer Places
In order to make improvements to what we already do we will be applying the 10 Standards for Creating Safer Places as promoted by the Christian Charity organisation, Thirtyone: eight (taken from Scriptures Proverbs 31:8) who is working in partnership with the National Office.

The 10 standards are:

  3.  Safer Recruitment

  4.  Management of Workers

  5.  Working Safely
