To this end they have put together a Safeguarding Policy to assist the Church in this work.

A copy of the full policy and procedures is available from the Pastor’s office, Albert Road Evangelical Church. A copy of our safeguarding policy has been lodged with 31:8 (formerly CCPAS) and the Local Safeguarding Children’s Board (LSCB). We will review this statement and our policy annually.
