Sections of the Chapter Handbook


New documents on Safeguarding are available on the website; these have been updated slightly, July 2017:


A section of the Chapter Handbook of Sept 2014, Safeguarding of vulnerable adults and children,  was provided as a separate document in May 2016; this is superseded by the October 2016 documents.

Equality and Diversity

A section of the Chapter Handbook of Sept 2014, Equality and Diversity Policy was provided as a separate document in May 2016.

See also the Chapter Handbook page,

The separate sections from the Chapter Handbook were provided in response to a request from an Area. We acknowledge that the Chapter Handbook is a large document and its section headings are not found by searches of the website. The topics here can be found by a search of the website for “safeguarding” or “diversity”.
