Emmanuel Church Woodley is committed to the care and protection of everyone in our church community and especially the care and protection of all our children, young people and vulnerable adults.  We do this through raising awareness of safeguarding, safely recruiting and supporting all those with any responsibility related to children, young people and vulnerable adults and responding promptly to any and every safeguarding concern that is raised.
