The Bracknell Team Ministry is committed to the safeguarding, care and nurture of everyone within our church community.

Our Safeguarding Policy is here.

We use the Parish Safeguarding Handbook here as a basis for our policies and procedures.

What to do if you have a safeguarding concern.

Safeguarding is everyone’s responsibility. If you have information about a safeguarding situation where a child or adult is in immediate danger, or requires immediate medical attention, call emergency services on 999.

If you do not think there is a risk of immediate harm, you should still speak to an official about your concern as soon as possible. You can contact any of the following:
