Safeguarding is not just about children. Every church needs to be clear about it's safeguarding responsibilities for children, young people and adults at risk.  All the churches in our benefice are committed to ensuring that everyone follows clear safeguarding policies and procedures, and receives the correct training. We operate within the guidance set down by th Diocese of Oxford .  The Osney Benefice  Safeguarding Policy can be accessed here and the North HInksey with Botley Policy can be found here.
