St Joseph's Catholic Church, Oakham


“St Joseph's Church, together with the Diocese of Nottingham, is committed to the safeguarding policies of the Catholic Church in England and Wales, to protect children, young people and vulnerable adults from any form of abuse or maltreatment and to promote a safe environment for them.

This commitment flows from the fact that we are all made in the image of God and the Church’s common belief in the dignity and uniqueness of every human life. We start from the principle that each person has a right to expect the highest level of care and protection, love encouragement and respect that we can give. We will liaise closely and openly with statutory agencies to ensure that any concerns or allegations of abuse that are raised are promptly reported and properly investigated, victims supported and perpetrators held to  account.

In accordance with the National Safeguarding policies, all of our Parish Volunteers who are working with children, young people and vulnerable adults are checked by the Parish Safeguarding Representative. This involves completing an application form with basic information; a confidential declaration form; and a DBS form.   The completed forms are sent to the Diocesan Safeguarding Office where they are processed and stored. All information is treated as confidential.

The Parish Safeguarding Representative ensures that all volunteers are given information in order to promote a safe environment for our children and vulnerable adults and a code of behaviour to promote best practice.  Volunteers are also given information to enable them to recognise and respond to a concern or an allegation of abuse of a child or vulnerable adult.
