FOREWORD BY THE BISHOP OF BLACKBURN

 

A vision for the direction of the Diocese has been emerging over quite a long period of time, but has gathered pace during the past 18 months.  A major part of that vision is to make Church life healthy, so that by 2026, the 100th anniversary of the Diocese, we have much to celebrate. Part of that ‘healthiness’ vision is to ensure each local Church and Christian community is operating and living out good safeguarding practice in the care of children and vulnerable adults.

 

The crucial nature of this cannot be stressed strongly enough.  We have a primary concern for survivors of abuse, children and vulnerable adults, to be assured of good processes and procedures to be in place on their behalf. As an organisation, we are very vulnerable and exposed, if we do not ensure good practice with regard to safeguarding.  Good safeguarding needs to be in the very DNA of the Diocese and each local church.
