To care for others whom God has created is at the heart of the Church’s mission. Safeguarding is a priority within the Archdiocese of Southwark and we recognise our duty to safeguard all members of our community, particularly children, young people, those that may be vulnerable, and adults at risk.

Caritas Safeguarding Declaration

Caritas Southwark volunteers and staff understand the position of trust in which they have been placed and their responsibilities within the National and Archdiocesan Safeguarding Policy. All have completed safer recruitment, including a DBS check where appropriate. 

Please see the safeguarding pages of the diocesan website to learn more about the safeguarding team, and how the Archdiocese of Southwark actively promotes a strong and compassionate culture of safeguarding through our processes and policies.
