Safeguarding

Safeguarding

The Contagious Leadership recognises the importance of its ministry to children, young people & vulnerable adults (delegates) and its responsibility to protect and safeguard the welfare of all those entrusted to the care of Contagious.

Safeguarding is not just a modern world thing, it is rooted in the Bible.  God is concerned for the weak and vulnerable who are loved and protected throughout the Bible.  Jesus is the greatest example of love.  The church should be a community of grace, love and safety.  Christians are called to follow Jesus and love others as he does.  Safeguarding is what Christians do!

Contagious Bible Ministries leadership recognises the need to provide a safe and caring environment for all delegates.  It also acknowledges that delegates can be the victims of physical, sexual and emotional abuse and neglect and sometimes those experiences come to light whilst at Contagious.  The Contagious Core Team has put in place procedures set out in our Safeguarding Policy.  It also recognises the need to build constructive links with statutory and voluntary Safeguarding agencies.  The policy with its practice guidelines has been checked and approved by Christian Safeguarding Services (CSS) who support Contagious with our safe recruitment, training and advice.
