In the document entitled “Key Roles and Responsibilities of Church Office Holders and Bodies Practice Guidance (2017)” (found here), section 3, it is stated that the parish will display:
In addition, the “Parish Safeguarding Handbook (October 2018)”, (found on this page here) launched in July 2018, offered additional guidance that a parish should also ‘ensure that safeguarding arrangements are clearly visible on the front page of the parish website’.
It was left to local determination about what information to put on the website, while recognising that not all parishes have their own website. If your parish doesn’t have a website, you should consider ensuring relevant information is added to your churches page on the National Church’s A Church Near You website.
This website already ensures there is a ‘safeguarding’ tab on every page, which will take the user through to a map highlighting diocesan safeguarding details. What you can do in addition is highlighted below.
A Church Near You and Safeguarding information
There is a link on the bottom of every page on A Church Near You to a map linking to all diocesan safeguarding contacts. This also shows on every parish ACNY page.
Churches can add a page to their ACNY profile with their local Safeguarding details. A guide on how to add pages to ACNY can be found on the editor help centre section, linked here - https://achurchnearyou.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/360010073334-Add-pages-change-the-order-of-pages-and-delete-pages
The Editor Help Centre also provides blogs on how to use ACNY more widely, including how to become an editor if your church does not yet use the site.
