Safeguarding is our Responsibility

Safeguarding is a priority in all our churches.

We are committed to following government and Church of England guidelines on safeguarding children and vulnerable adults and good working practice, including safer recruitment of volunteers and paid workers.

We work to a formal safeguarding policy and procedure it can be seen on request from the Parish Safeguarding Officer (see list below)

If you have any concerns regarding the safety or welfare of a child or vulnerable adult you can speak to:
Garry Johnson Diocesan Safeguarding Officer (tel 01733 887000)
or our Parish Safeguarding Officer.

They have been appointed by the Peterborough Diocese and our Church PCCs to respond to any safeguarding concerns.
