NB. Safeguarding notice: Most of the students going to university will be 18, but some of the young people involved in activities suggested in Branching Out and Keeping in Touch may be younger, and it is important that you follow your church’s safeguarding policy when organising activities. Some young people over the age of 18 may be vulnerable adults, and your safeguarding policy should include provision for these students. This is particularly important when considering mentoring schemes and organising hospitality. If you need further advice, please consult the safeguarding officer for your church or group.
