Kidderminster West Team Ministry is committed to safeguarding everyone within our churches including children, young adults, and vulnerable adults. As members of the Church of England we are concerned with the wholeness of each individual within God’s purpose for everyone.   We seek to safeguard all members of the church community, of all ages. It is the responsibility of each one of us to protect children, young people and vulnerable adults from physical, emotional and sexual abuse, and from neglect.
