Britain Yearly Meeting recognises that there is that of God in everyone. All adults and children deserve respect, value and appropriate care. Our care extends both to those who are potentially vulnerable as victims of abuse, and those who are perpetrators.
Quakers are committed to:
- the care, respect and nurture of all vulnerable groups encountered within Quaker activities
- the safeguarding and protection of children and other vulnerable people
- the promotion of a culture of good practice in relation to activities promoted by Quaker meetings and groups
- maintaining and developing procedures and good practice guidelines
