The United Benefice of the Ramseys and Upwood (with the Raveleys) is committed to safeguarding all those who attend worship and the other activities that we offer. We follow the House of Bishops’ Policy (2017), the Diocese of Ely policy and procedures (2017) and the practice guidance as layed out in the Parish Safeguarding Handbook (2018).
We seek to create a culture where everyone is included, respected, listened to, and taken seriously. We also endeavour to create an environment that is physically safe, emotionally nurturing, intellectually open, spiritually healthy and socially inclusive. We accept the prime duty of care for children and vulnerable adults, and have appointed a safeguarding co-ordinator to ensure that what we do is informed by up-to-date policies and procedures from local and national authorities. We endeavour to make training and information available to everyone to foster and encourage a culture of congregational care.
