Christ Church is committed to the safeguarding, care and nurture of all of our members with special attention given to protecting youth and vulnerable adults.
Safeguarding is a core part of our responsibility and we implement the policies specified by the Church of England Diocese in Europe and supplemented by those at Christ Church (see links below).
As these policies specify we require background checks for all those in roles with responsibilities involving youth or vulnerable adults (i.e. these roles include Chaplain, Safeguarding Officer, Churchwardens, pastoral care givers, and Sunday Club teachers) and implement other safety measures such as requiring at least two adults be present when youth are involved.
For any questions or concerns our Christ Church Safeguarding Officer, Olasimbo (Simbo) Adenugba, can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org. Alternatively, you may call the Christ Church office at +41 21 312 65 63 or via email at email@example.com.
At the Church of England Diocese in Europe level the church also has a Safeguarding contact:
