CSS are tipping the whole thing upside down, they’ve upped the game so far as service to churches is concerned, we wonder what we have been doing for so long without this.  We look back and think, ‘why weren’t we told all this before because we could have done so much better in the past’ ”

  • As a church we benefitted from the Essential Awareness for our volunteers, we now ask CSS back regularly for updates on a more of a themed training session.

    - Leicestershire Church -
  • Thanks Paul and Sue - A very useful session. I was pleasantly surprised at the clarity structure and huge content of the course, careful to concentrate on the matter in hand and not be distracted by peripheral issues. Super ability to take and give answers to questions on the fly. Crystallising many things I have thought but not known for sure. Helping me be sure about the difference between safeguarding concern, allegation, whistleblowing and complaint. and the different ways to work out about a threshold having been crossed or not and then what to do. Excellent.” Church Leader

    - Church Leader on Responding Well to Allegations Course -
  • We always thought local authorities were like “big brother”. You’ve helped us to understand why we need to have all these measures in place, never realised we needed risk assessments doing.

    - Derbyshire Church -
  • I hate process. It bores me stiff. But! Paul’s conveying that pruning away into appendices that morass of stuff most people in safeguarding seem to love to wallow in, is………..healthy! and the need is to focus on practicalities, changed a sceptic into a convert. Wish evangelism was as simple! Keep on keeping on.

    - Charity Trustee -
  • I thoroughly enjoyed the training on Saturday. Not sure many people say that about safeguarding training! I found the online work and then the face to face session really helpful, informative and practical. I have come away with some practical things to look at in regard to our systems and also I feel more equipped to support my DSL.

    - Norwich Church -

Why come to CSS for your safeguarding needs?

“CSS are tipping the whole thing upside down, who have upped the game so far as service to churches is concerned, we wonder what we have been doing for so long without this. We look back and think, why weren’t we told this before because we could have done so much better in the past.” Manchester Church We partner with churches and other faith-based organisations to help them to think through their approach to safeguarding. We support and serve churches to help them to develop their policies, procedures, systems and the culture that’s needed to safeguard their congregations. Supporting churches and faith based organisations by being biblically faithful in a God-honouring way. We offer churches a very flexible approach to their safeguarding needs. 📍It doesn’t have to cost churches a huge amount of money and there are some services you can use with us for FREE, without being a paid member. Our DBS service can be accessed without paying an annual fee. We work professionally in the safeguarding field; we are also evangelical believers who are actively involved in church leadership, Paul is a preaching Elder in an FIEC church. Our passion is to help churches and faith-based organisations think through this important theme from a biblical frame of reference. As an organisation Christian Safeguarding Services provides services based upon evangelical principles.
