Are they safe?

LBFN will be looking at some new materials from the Safe Network for churches and other faith-based groups tomorrow.

They are designed to help the people responsible for any activity involving children, including worship, to work out the best way to make sure the children are well looked after and safe.

If you are coming to LBFN tomorrow, please have a look at the Are They Safe? guide (three easy to follow leaflets) online beforehand – there will be hard copies available at the meeting.

If you are not joining us this time, your comments on the material are welcome here.  If your comments arrive before tomorrow morning, we will include them in the discussion.

Each borough has a Local Safeguarding Children Board.
