St Aidan's Policy Statement on Children, Young People and Our Church




  • As members of this church we commit ourselves to the nurturing, protection and safekeeping of all, especially children and young people.


  • It is the responsibility of each one of us to prevent the physical, sexual and emotional abuse of children and young people and to report any abuse discovered or suspected.


  • We recognise that our work with children and young people is the responsibility of the whole church.


  • The church is committed to supporting, resourcing and training those who work with children and young people and to providing supervision.


  • Our Church is committed to following the guidelines and procedures published by the Diocese of Manchester.


  • The parish will adopt good practice guidelines.


  • Each worker with children and young people must know the guidelines and undertake to follow them.  Each shall be given a copy of the Parish’s agreed procedures and Good Practice Guidelines.


  • As part of our commitment to children and young people the PCC has appointed Joanne Elcock to be the Parish Child Protection Co-ordinator.



This statement was agreed at the PCC Meeting on 8th March 2010.
