CSS are tipping the whole thing upside down, who’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’ ”

  • 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 -
  • The system is great. I have previously used the platform from another provider and this is a big improvement. Setting up the applications is simple and the applicants get a straightforward journey through the process, which means people have been quick to get the form filled in and I have had to do much less chasing. The ID checking screen isn't the best layout, but it's straightforward enough to use once you have worked out what's where. Getting an email when the checks come back is a huge help. The assistance we have had from CSS in getting set up has been top notch - quick, professional and friendly.

    - Trinity Church Manchester -
  • Effective, diligent, knowledgable and adaptable

    - Samaritans Purse UK -
  • I have been really surprised at how quick and easy it has been to get all our volunteers DBS checked. I keep thinking I've missed something as it can't be that easy! Thanks so much for all your help and answers to silly questions :)

    - Options Wimbledon -
  • 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

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.
