Charlton & Blackheath Christian Fellowship is committed to following government and CCPAS guidelines on safeguarding children and vulnerable adults and good working practice, including safe recruitment of workers.
We work to a formal safeguarding policy which may be seen on request to the CBCF office.
If you have any concern about the welfare or safety of a child, young person or vulnerable adult you should speak to our Safeguarding Co-ordinator, Mrs Sue Redford or our deputy Safeguarding Co-ordinator, Mrs Lisa Tinlin. They have been appointed by CBCF leadership to respond to any safeguarding concerns.

There are real dangers and it is important that we understand the risks and take them on board. We need to be sure that when we and our young people are using laptops, computers, mobile phones or any other online gizmos or gadgets that we are doing so safely and responsibly.
