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)
