Promoting a Safer Church
Capel United Church takes the safeguarding of children and adults at risk seriously and the Ecumenical Church Council has adopted the House of Bishops Policy on Safeguarding Children, Young People and adults.
If you or someone you are concerned about is in immediate danger,
please call the police on 999
If you are concerned that someone you know is at risk, or is being abused, or presents a risk to others, please seek advice from a Safeguarding Adviser or if necessary report the matter to the Local Authority Social Care Services or the Police without delay.
