The Worldwide Board of Mothers’ Union has made the following commitment: As an organisation concerned with Christian principles and ministry in family life, the nurture and protection of children and vulnerable adults is at the heart of Mothers’ Union. Both individually as members and collectively as an organisation, Mothers’ Union has a duty to protect children and vulnerable adults, doing everything possible to ensure that they are safe when left in Mothers’ Union temporary care.
The current safeguarding advice and guidance to our affiliated Dioceses in Britain and Ireland is given below in our related resources. Each Diocese is required to sign a letter of assurance each year that it has proper policies and procedures in place
Our code of conduct for staff, which all are required to sign is given below in our related resources.
We are deeply committed to ensuring that our policies and practices across the world are appropriate, and as such the Board is reviewing these during 2018/19. The Audit and Risk Committee has been mandated to lead on this.
