The Lighthouse Project, in association with Scripture Union, is a charity made up of volunteers and paid staff.
The Lighthouse Project exists to serve the children and young people of Crawley by presenting Jesus to them in a way that they can understand and respond to.
We believe that all human beings are of equal worth in the sight of God and aim to follow Biblical principles in all that we do. Therefore:
- We commit ourselves to the nurture, protection, and general welfare of all, especially children and young people.
- It is the responsibility of each one of us to protect children, young people and adults at risk of harm from all forms of abuse and to report any disclosures of abuse in addition to suspicions or concerns.
- In order to achieve this, we are committed to supporting, resourcing and training those who work with children and young people. We will provide appropriate supervision, recognise mutual accountability and commit to an annual review of our safeguarding policy, procedures and practices.
The Lighthouse Project has adopted the above principles; all volunteers and staff are presented with a copy of relevant procedures and are expected to follow the procedures and guidelines as set out in this document.
