Safeguarding at THCC

If you have any questions regarding Safeguarding and are attending any of our sessions or services please ask a leader who will be happy to introduce you to the relevant person.

Our Designated Safeguarding Officer (DSO) is Hannah Genn, her deputies are Tony Uddin and Bex White.

If you would like to see our safeguarding policy or ask us any questions concerning safeguarding please contact the church office at church@thcc.org.uk  or if you’re in person at a session or service please speak to a leader who will be happy to help.

THCC recognises the need to provide a safe and caring environment for children, young people and adults.  We therefore have a safeguarding policy in accordance with statutory guidance. 

We accept the UN Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the International Covenant of Human Rights, which states that everyone is entitled to “all the rights and freedoms set forth therein, without distinction of any kind, such as race, colour, sex, language, religion, political or other opinion, national or social origin, property, birth or other status”.  

We also concur with the Convention on the Rights of the Child which states that children should be able to develop their full potential, free from hunger and want, neglect and abuse.   They have a right to be protected from “all forms of physical or mental violence, injury or abuse, neglect or negligent treatment or exploitation, including sexual abuse, while in the care of parent(s), legal guardian(s), or any other person who has care of the child.”
