At Christ Church Central Leeds, we’re committed to providing a safe and caring environment for children, young people, vulnerable adults - indeed, anyone who worships with us. We recognise that safeguarding is the responsibility of the whole church with our aim being to uphold the honour of God's name and keep the good news of Jesus from disrepute. We seek to do this by providing clear guidelines and appropriate training for our staff and volunteers, taking suspected, disclosed, or alleged abuse seriously and having processes and procedures in place to ensure the right action is taken, and actively maintaining and regularly reviewing our safeguarding policy and procedures.

If anyone is in danger
If anyone is in immediate danger, call the police on 999 straight away.
Reporting safeguarding concerns
Any allegation or concern regarding the abuse of a child or vulnerable adult must be treated seriously and reported as soon as possible. A concern can arise when you observe or suspect abusive behaviour, when an allegation is made or disclosed, or where there are indicators (signs and symptoms) of suspected abuse on the victim.
If you have any concerns:
about the well-being of a child or vulnerable adult
about something at church that is not right
please contact Ben Quintin or Helen Porteous, our church Safeguarding Leads, by emailing email@example.com.
