The Chapter of Wells Cathedral are committed to the protection of children and vulnerable adults visiting the Cathedral, the Cathedral choristers and those attending services as well as any employees, trainees and volunteers.

We provide safe recruitment, training and support to our voluntary and paid workers who are in contact with children and vulnerable adults. We will respond without delay to every complaint made which suggests that an adult, child or young person may have been harmed, cooperating with the relevant authorities in any investigation.
