Promoting a Culture of Safeguarding

The Trustees of the Diocese of Wrexham under the leadership of His Lordship Bishop Brignall fully adhere to all Safeguarding Policies and Procedures as set out in National Guidelines.  The leadership of the Catholic Church in England and Wales has adopted a common set of national safeguarding standards for the safeguarding and protection of children, and adults who may be vulnerable or at risk.   

The standards operate as a coherent whole, which together form an overarching framework within which all church bodies are expected to operate.  They represent the expected level of practice that is to be applied by church bodies for the purpose of safeguarding the children and adults with whom the Church has contact.

The purpose of the Safeguarding Sub-committee of Trustees is to support and assist the Diocesan Trustees in discharging their duties in Safeguarding, in accordance with the Trustees legal and regulatory duties, trust deed, Charity Commission guidance, and operating within the standards, polices and procedures of the Catholic Safeguarding Standards Agency.
