Private arrangements made between families or friends are not covered by this policy, even where the people involved know each other through their church links.
Only activities formally provided by the Church are covered. For other contexts, for example in the Island jurisdictions and the Diocese of Europe, then again every effort should be made to map the principles and detailed provisions of this process into their specific context.
This policy is intended to supplement all such policies, and it applies to arrangements for all types of work: employment; office-holders; volunteers; students as well as other types of activity such as internships.
All this other guidance should cross-refer to this policy.Only a tiny percentage of adults who abuse children get caught and still fewer get convicted, so you must never rely solely on the criminal record check which, although crucial, remains only one element of safeguarding.
