The care and protection of young people, vulnerable adults and members who are involved in the activities of the Chapel is the responsibility of all who attend it. Every person has a value and dignity, which comes directly from the creation of people in God’s image. Amongst other things this implies a duty to value all people as bearing the image of God and therefore to protect them from harm. All those who participate in the life of the Chapel have a role to play in promoting a safer Chapel for all; safeguarding and the promotion of individual welfare is the responsibility of all of us.
