Salisbury Cathedral is committed to ensuring it provides a safe and caring environment for all, including children and adults who may be at risk of abuse and neglect. We aim to create safe environments within which our welcome to all is matched by proper and effective safeguards.
The Chapter of Salisbury Cathedral accepts and adopts in full the contents of The Church of England’s Safeguarding Policy for children, young people and adults, “Promoting a Safer Church”. (July 2017)
Chapter will ensure we work towards implementing the Policy requirements. This is supported by the work of the Cathedral’s Independent Safeguarding Group and discussions with the Diocesan Safeguarding Management Group.
We act promptly on any complaints made, working in close partnership with Salisbury Diocese on any such matters. Our staff and volunteers who work with children and vulnerable adults, are provided with safeguarding training and support.
