At St James Road Methodist Church we are aware of our responsibilities in terms of safeguarding, most especially with a concern for the most vulnerable. Many of our members have undergone safeguarding training provided by the Methodist Church, and key staff and volunteers have up to date DBS checks. Some of our members are also ‘Dementia Friends’.

We have designated people responsible for safeguarding for the church, circuit and district. We link with Southampton City Council in our safeguarding of vulnerable groups.
