Team work

Safeguarding at Lakeside Church

We are committed to you.

What is safeguarding?

Safeguarding is the protection of children, young and vulnerable adults. It is about protecting those, who may not have a voice otherwise. At Lakeside Church, we take Safeguarding seriously, and as such are proud to support our staff and volunteers who are passionately serving the local community in a variety of projects.

What are we actively doing?

We regularly provide training opportunities for our staff and volunteers. This is both an introduction for those who have previously not had training, and a refresher for those who have.

Statement of committment to safegurading

Elim is committed to creating healthy churches and safe spaces for all. We recognise the ways in which children and adults can be at risk of harm or abuse, so endeavour to create a culture to minimise opportunities for abuse to occur. Children rely on adults to keep them safe, therefore all our churches working with children, either directly or indirectly, are committed to safeguarding children in their care.  We seek to do this by providing a safe, stable, and nurturing environment where children can reach their full potential. Similarly, within our churches there are adults in need of protection, care and support due to vulnerability, whether that is a permanent or temporary state. We are aware too that within our churches there are relationships of trust, which flourish best within healthy churches and environments, where there is openness, transparency and accountability. We firmly believe that safeguarding is everyone’s responsibility, and all involved in the life of our churches and activities have a role to play in keeping children, young people and adults safe.
