Protecting children and vulnerable adults

Monday, July 9, 2012

Sheffield Heeley MP Meg Munn was recently invited to meet members of the Churches’ Agency for Safeguarding to discuss some of the forthcoming changes to procedures for checking volunteers and employees who will be working with children. In September 2012 Criminal Record checks and the safeguarding system which protects children and vulnerable groups against risk of harm is due to be substantially amended.

 

Concerns have been raised by many of the churches about who will be eligible under the new rules, and whether the arrangements are sufficient to protect children from those who might do them harm.

 

The Churches’ Agency for Safeguarding is an independent organisation registered with the Criminal Records Bureau (CRB) and provides its members with a central processing service for CRB disclosure checks for church ministers, workers and volunteers. Their aim is to support Christian churches and organisations in maintaining a safe environment for children and vulnerable adults.

 

Meg said:

 

“It is important that the government get these changes right so that organisations are able to keep children safe. It is particularly important that they listen to the view of the faith sector, as the regulations need to be applied in different ways to the many different organisations involved. I am seeking a meeting with the Home Office minister to raise these concerns.
