The Oak Community Church has a number of policies in place to ensure we operate responsibly, transpartently and legally. You can find all our published policies here.
Our Safeguarding Policy tells you how The Oak Community Church (The Oak) is committed to the safeguarding of children and vulnerable adults and ensuring their well-being.
We recognise that we all have a responsibility to help prevent the physical, sexual, psychological, financial and discriminatory abuse and neglect of vulnerable adults and to report any such abuse that we discover or suspect. We recognise the personal dignity and rights of vulnerable adults and will ensure all our policies and procedures will reflect this.
We believe all adults should enjoy and have access to every aspect of the life of The Oak Community Church. We undertake to exercise proper care in the appointment and selection of those who will work with children and vulnerable adults. We believe every child should be valued, safe and happy. We want to make sure that children we have contact with know this and are empowered to tell us if they are suffering harm.
