Wakefield Baptist Church takes Safeguarding very seriously and every volunteer working with children, youth and vulnerable adults is DBS checked every 3 years.  They also sign an annual waiver and attend safeguarding training every 3 years.  Details of the children regarding allergies, illness, contact details etc are kept in a secure place and renewed annually.  Policies and procedures are in place and reviewed annually.
