Birmingham Cathedral, Birmingham Diocese and the Church of England treats the duty of care it owes to children entrusted into our care very seriously.

The safety and security of children is of the utmost importance and guidelines and policies are part of the processes that have been adopted to ensure that all children taking part in activities in the cathedral may do so in a caring and safe atmosphere.
