Promoting a Safer Church
At Blackburn Cathedral we take safeguarding very seriously and have adopted the House of Bishops ‘Promoting a Safer Church’ policy and the Parish Safeguarding Handbook, incorporating the House of Bishop’s Safeguarding Policy and Practice Guidance – please see the Parish Safeguarding Handbook below.
We have also displayed the Promoting a Safer Church poster prominently within the Cathedral.
