The document that is linked below sets out the Charity Commission guidance on Safeguarding and the Wiltshire Historic Churches Trust (WHCT) Safeguarding Policy. The WHCT Safeguarding Policy is sponsored by a lead Trustee and reviewed annually by WHCT Trustees in November.
At one time or another we are all vulnerable and may struggle to protect ourselves from harm caused by others. Everyone in the WHCT community has a responsibility for the safety, wellbeing and protection of others
Drawing on Charity Commission and church guidance, it is the responsibility of all members of WHCT to give paramount importance to the nurture and care of vulnerable adults and young people and in a safe and secure environment. It is about preventing harm to anyone who is always potentially at risk.
