Safeguarding at trinity

TRINITY welcomes children, young people and vulnerable adults into the church community.

We want to ensure everyone is kept safe when they are on church premises or attending any event run by us. To this end we have adopted the House of Bishops’ Child Protection Policy “Protecting all God’s Children” as the basis for our own policy and practice document.

Further information about Safeguarding at TRINITY can be accessed below.
