Along with the rest of the Methodist Church, the High Wycombe Circuit takes seriously its responsibilities for the care and nurture of all children, young people and adults.

This is summarised in the Statement of Safeguarding Principles

The Circuit Policy was approved at the Autumn Circuit Meeting and can be found here:

High Wycombe Circuit Policy

We also have model policies for the Circuit and Churches. The church model policy can be downloaded here:
Model Church Policy 

These policies are taken from the new Methodist Safeguarding Policy published in 2017.
