Safe to Grow

Queens Road has a long and proud history of youth work but we realise the importance of not becoming complacent and the safety of children and young people in our care is of utmost importance to us.

The church is committed to following the Home Office Code of Practice 'Safe from Harm' and adopts the guidelines and procedures published by the Baptist Union of Great Britain in its booklet 'Safe to Grow'.

That means that every leader, from a teacher with many years of youth work experience to a teenager helping out in creche for the first time must be checked and vetted as to their suitability.

We are grateful to Sue Senior who works hard administering our Safe to Grow Policy and to Judith Brazier, our Designated Person for Safeguarding.
