I/the organisation that I represent am/is committed to protecting and safeguarding children, young people and adults at risk.
I/the organisation that I represent have/has a Safeguarding Policy in place and have/has an understanding of it, and undertake(s) to follow the Code of Practice contained therein. A copy of the full policy is attached.

All those who are working with children, young people or adults at risk during this Hall Let must be registered with the Protection of Vulnerable Groups (PVG) Scheme, and all volunteers must have a completed PVG form. I understand that if the organisation I represent is found to be in breach of this Declaration, the Church reserves the right to cancel any leasing or hiring agreement immediately.
I have read and understand the hall conditions to be adopted in case of fire or other emergency.
At the end of the hire I will notify Hall Committee or nominated person of any accident involving personal injury.
I am aware that St. John the Baptist Roman Catholic Church has a dedicated Safeguarding Officer (Catherine Anne Houston) who may be contacted at the Church.
I understand that it is my responsibility to report any issues relating to Safeguarding to her.
