Diocese of York Safeguarding
Wydale Hall is a ministry of the Diocese of York and part of the Church of England, whose Archbishops, Bishops, clergy and leaders are committed to safeguarding as an integral part of the life and ministry of the Church.
Safeguarding means the action that Wydale takes to promote a safer culture. This means we will promote the safeguarding and welfare of children, young people and adults, work to prevent abuse from occurring, seek to protect those that are at risk of being abused and respond well to those that have been abused. We will take care to identify where a person may present a risk to others, and offer support to them whilst taking steps to mitigate such risks.
Wydale affirms the ‘Whole Church’ approach to safeguarding. This approach encompasses a commitment to consistent policy and practice across teams and departments and that everyone associated with Wydale, who comes into contact with children, young people and adults, has a role to play.
Wydale will take appropriate steps to maintain a safer environment for all and to practice fully and positively Christ's Ministry towards children, young people and adults; to respond sensitively and compassionately to their needs in order to help keep them safe from harm.
Wydale’s policies on safeguarding young people and adults are available below:
