NWBA - Safeguarding

We believe that the church should be a safe place for Everyone, from the youngest to the oldest and everyone in-between. Therefore we take Safeguarding seriously; safeguarding is the act of protecting children and adults at risk from harm. Every church should adopt a safeguarding policy and have in place up-to-date procedures enabling safeguarding to be a priority in their church context.

NWBA works with Baptists Together to provide information, guidance, resources and training so that our Baptist churches can maintain safe environments. A comprehensive collection of forms, model procedures, policies and service ideas are available in the Resource Library on the Baptists Together website

Safeguarding Training
NWBA offers Excellence in Safeguarding, the BUGB-produced Safeguarding training. This is available for all levels of church life:

Level 1 – is designed to give an overview of safe guarding to the whole of the church. There are two short videos available for church services/church meetings, and resources to help children think through the issues too.
Level 2 – is for those who work directly with children or adults at risk in a Baptist church, ministers, trustees, deacons and the designated person for safeguarding.
Level 3 – is for the church leadership, ministers, trustees/deacons and the designated person for safeguarding.


Level one material is available to download from the BUGB website whilst levels 2 and 3 are delivered by a BUGB safeguarding trainer. Information on the currently planned L2 and L3 courses can be found in the events section of this website
