Annual Safeguarding Checklist

There will be no Provincial Safeguarding Annual Return for 2023 as the Provincial Safeguarding Team are re-evaluating the process in light of new legislation being implemented in 2024. The Diocese will be sending out a simple checklist to assist Vestries in maintaining safeguarding best practice.
