Safeguarding

PROMOTING A SAFER CHAPEL ROYAL POLICY STATEMENT

The Chapel Royal Hampton Court Palace, endorses fully the Church of England’s safeguarding policy statement; Promoting a Safer Church. This states: ‘The care and protection of children, young people and vulnerable adults involved in Church activities is the responsibility of the whole Church. Everyone who participates in the life of the Church has a role to play in promoting a Safer Church for all.’

We have also adopted the Principles of the House of Bishops on safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and adults at risk who enter the Chapel Royal Hampton Court Palace which is based on the following six overarching policy commitments:

  • Promoting a safer environment and culture
  • Safely recruiting and supporting all those with any responsibility related to
    children, young people and vulnerable adults within the Church
  • Responding promptly to every safeguarding concern or allegation
  • Caring pastorally for victims/survivors of abuse and other affected persons
  • Caring pastorally for those who are the subject of concerns or allegations of
    abuse and other affected persons
  • Responding to those that may pose a present risk to others
