Belhaven Church takes Safeguarding very seriously. We know that harm or abuse of children and adults at risk can happen anywhere – even in Church communities. We have a duty to ensure a safe Church for all.
To fulfil this duty and ensure that we provide a safe environment for all, Belhaven Church has adopted the Safeguarding policies and procedures of the Church of Scotland. The safeguarding policy statement of the Church of Scotland, and of Belhaven Church, is given below.
We have a Safeguarding Panel that includes the Minister, the Session Clerk and the Safeguarding Coordinator, who is Mrs Margaret Cannon - see the contacts page for details of how to get in touch with any of these people.
