The Scottish Episcopal Church recognises the special status of children and young people.  Because of their vulnerability, children and young people will be awarded special protection.  They are to be respected as persons in their own right, created and loved by God. We, therefore, commit ourselves to take all steps within our power to keep children and young people safe from physical, sexual and emotional harm.
The Scottish Episcopal Church recognises the special status of all vulnerable people, particularly those who, because they are affected by disability, mental disorder, illness, infirmity or ageing, are unable to protect themselves from abuse, or more vulnerable to being abused than persons who are not so affected. Because of their vulnerability, such people will be awarded special protection.  They are to be respected as persons in their own right, created and loved by God.  We, therefore commit ourselves to take all steps within our power to keep vulnerable people safe from harm and from an abuse of trust.
