Safeguarding Policy

Jenny Payne

Jenny Payne is the Designated Person for Safeguarding appointed by Stalham Baptist Church. She is has a key role in helping the church to respond appropriately to any concerns that are raised about the safety or well-being of children, young people and vulnerable adults who are part of our church community.

If concerns are raised, Jenny will work together with the Safeguarding Deacon and the Minister to ensure that any information is promptly assessed and any appropriate action is taken without delay. When needed, Jenny will be the link between the church and other outside bodies, such as Social Services or the Police.

Safeguarding is everyone's responsibility, so if you have any concerns about the safety or well-being of a child, young person or vulnerable adult please speak to Jenny, even if you are unsure if it is something that will require action. It is better to discuss your concerns and be reassured than to ignore them and then worry that someone is at risk of harm.
