We are really privileged to work with a huge number of churches in our expanding network. We also have a growing number of faith based organisations partnering with us for all their safeguarding support needs such as training, advice and consultancy .
NB. At CSS our primary work is to support churches and faith based organisations to exceed best practice in safeguarding. Whilst we are unable to support individuals who may be affected negatively by issues within their organisations, we can signpost to support. We just don't have the funding to offer this service. It is our belief that all victims must be taken seriously when raising issues of harm within their organisation. Harm either caused by individuals or harm caused by the organisation. We encourage churches and charities to have robust protocols, policies and procedures in place for responding to all complaints, all allegations and disclosures and to manage them appropriately and fairly. Churches and faith based charities should be organisations who listen and respond well and in a timely way where issues are raised by individuals.
