We take very seriously our responsibility to safeguard the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults entrusted to the church's care.

The Diocese of York includes the Benefice of Rural East York, which includes St Nicholas, Dunnington and also Holy Trinity, Holtby; Holy Trinity, Stockton on the Forest; and St Mary's, Warthill churches.

All volunteers in positions of responsibility complete the Safer Recruitment process as outlined by the Church of England National Safeguarding Team.  They are also expected to familiarise themselves with the Child Safeguarding Policy and Adult Safeguarding Policy, where applicable to their role.
