District Safeguarding Group (DSG)

Each Methodist district is required to have a Safeguarding Group (DSG) whose purpose is to assist and guide the effective implementation of the safeguarding policy across all churches and district activities.

DSG Standards and Criteria


The function of the Standards and their associated model criteria is to facilitate District Safeguarding Groups in:

  • an overview of the profile of safeguarding in the district,
  • enabling evaluation of safeguarding
  • assisting in determination of priorities
  • supporting the development of a strategic plan.
  • enabling review of progress against the plan

Each standard has a number of criteria linked with it to assist in the determination of whether a given standard is being reached. These criteria are being suggested as model criteria which may need to be modified in the light of the local context.

Sheffield District Safeguarding Policy

In line with the policy document 'Safeguarding policy, Procedure and Guidance for the Methodist Church 2019' the district produces a safeguarding policy.
