Safeguarding in St Andrew's Wallace Green & Lowick Church of Scotland

Safeguarding is about preventing harm and abuse. And making a timely and appropriate response if it occurs.

Harm or abuse of children and adults at risk can happen anywhere – even in church communities. We have a duty to Ensure a Safe Church for All. This means protecting children and 'adults at risk'.

The Church aims to minimise the risk of harm occurring. If harm or abuse does occur, with appropriate support and training, it will be recognised and reported. If it occurs we will work with the Police and Social Work services if appropriate.

Each church will use the following Handbooks which you can download as a PDF by clicking on the title.
