Safeguarding

Our PCC has formally adopted the House of Bishops’ Promoting a Safer Church; Safeguarding Policy Statement (which can be viewed here).  We are committed to the care and protection of children, young people and vulnerable adults involved in Church activities.

If you are concerned that someone you know is at risk of, or is being abused, or presents a risk to others, please seek advice from the Diocesan Safeguarding Adviser, or if necessary, report the matter to your Local Authority Social Care Services or the Police.
