The Chaplaincy at Manchester Airport believes that children, young people and vulnerable adults have the right to be protected from all forms of harm, abuse, neglect and exploitation.

We are committed to this, and in all aspects of our life and work we will champion the protection of everyone with whom we come into contact, regardless of age, gender identity, disability, sexual orientation, marital status, pregnancy, race, religion, or ethnic origin. As such we will not tolerate abuse and exploitation by any of our board members, staff, volunteers, or any associated persons.

By setting the highest safeguarding standards, we seek to foster and encourage best practices within the airport, local faith communities, and wider society. We will work with statutory bodies, voluntary agencies and faith communities to promote the safety and well-being of children, young people and at-risk (vulnerable) adults.

We are committed to addressing safeguarding throughout our work and through the three pillars of prevention, reporting and response. We will act promptly whenever a concern is raised about the welfare of a child, young person or at-risk, or vulnerable) adult, ensuring we cooperate fully with the appropriate statutory bodies when an investigation into abuse is necessary.

The Safeguarding Lead for the Chaplaincy is the Lead Chaplain, Rev’d Canon George Lane.
