Safeguarding Statement

At Hope Church Lytham, we prioritise the safety of our children, young people and vulnerable adults. Staff, volunteers and Trustees are regularly training and risk assessing; looking at ways to keep our activities and projects safe and accessible for all.

If you have a concern regarding a child, young person or vulnerable adult whilst you are at any of our projects, or if you know they attend Hope Church please speak to our Designated Safeguarding and Child Protection Officer Ruth Filmer.

In her absence please speak to John Filmer, or if it concerns either party, then one of the other church leaders or Trustees should be informed, or you can call Thirtyone:eight on 0303 003 1111.

All Safeguarding issues will be dealt with quickly, consulting when necessary Thirtyone:eight, and Local Police or Social Services.

Safeguarding is everybody’s responsibility, thank you for playing your part in keeping this a safe environment.
