“The Church of Scotland has a deep concern for the wholeness and wellbeing of each individual. Through its Congregations, working together with the Safeguarding Service and statutory agencies, the Church seeks to safeguard the welfare of all people who come into contact with the Church and its services. The Gospel proclaims that it’s the responsibility of everyone within the fellowship of the Church to prevent harm, be it physical, sexual or emotional, and we will always seek to reduce risk. The Church’s commitment to safeguarding reminds us that God cares passionately about the welfare and wellbeing of all people.” (Church of Scotland Safeguarding Policy Statement, 2010)
At Dunblane Cathedral we take Safeguarding very seriously. Nobody is allowed to volunteer in any of our children’s or young people’s groups, or work with vulnerable adults without having been through a strict vetting procedure including an Enhanced Disclosure check.
We have a clear policy in place if a child, young person or vulnerable adult discloses information to any of our volunteers. We take seriously our obligation to pass on any concerns we may have over their wellbeing but seek to act sensitively at all times.
The Safeguarding Co-ordinators for Dunblane Cathedral are Fiona Tullis and Margaret Logie. Please click here to contact him if you have any questions or visit the Safeguarding Office pages within The Church of Scotland website.
