The Society’s Safeguarding Policy reflects theological, moral and ethical values which flow from the fact that we are all made in the image of God and the SVP’s 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, protection, love, encouragement and respect that we can give. These values commit us to honour the intrinsic dignity of every person and to create relationships of mutual respect regardless of race, gender, nationality, ethnic group, religion, sexual orientation, age, ability, beliefs or any other differences.
They also require that we report all safeguarding concerns encountered in our work on behalf of the Society without delay. To view our full safeguarding policy including reporting procedures please click HERE.
