    The Guildford Town Centre Chaplaincy in committed to supporting its staff and volunteers to enable them to undertake their roles safely and professionally and to meet their needs for pastoral care.  This include providing high quality training, a volunteer pack with advice and guidance on a wide range of issues and ensuring volunteers have access to pastoral support should they need it.
    The volunteer pack for Street Angels includes:

    Safeguarding children and vulnerable adults

    The Guildford Town Centre Chaplaincy takes seriously its responsibilities for protecting and safeguarding the welfare of all those entrusted to its care particularly children, young people and vulnerable adults.
    We have therefore adopted a comprehensive safeguarding policy which demonstrates our commitment to:

    • Valuing, listening to and respecting children, young people and vulnerable adults as well as promoting their welfare and protection.
    • Safe recruitment, supervision and training for all the staff and volunteers including taking up references, interviews and Criminal Records Bureau checks (DBS).
    • Adopting a procedure for dealing with concerns about possible abuse.
    • Encouraging and supporting parents/carers.
    • Supporting anyone affected by abuse in the organisation.
    • Maintaining good links with the statutory authorities and other organisations.

    We carry out DBS checks for all of our Street Angels, in line with CCPAS (Church Child Protection Advisory Service) Guidelines. This is the equivalent of the former ‘CRB’ checks, and they are now done on-line.

    Prayer And Reflection

    “So let us learn how to serve, And in our lives enthrone Him; Each other's needs to prefer, For it is Christ we're serving.”
