The parish of Astbury St Mary, the mother church for Somerford All Saints Chapel of Ease, is committed to the safeguarding of children, young people and adults. We follow the House of Bishops guidance and policies and have our own Parish Safeguarding Officer, PSO. The Diocese of Chester’s safeguarding pages contain vital links and information including contacts for the Diocesan Safeguarding Advisor (DSA) who advise our PSO. If you are concerned that a child or adult has been harmed or may be at risk of harm please contact the DSA. If you have immediate concerns about the safety of someone, please contact the police and your local authority Children or Adults Services.

This church takes its duty and obligation to protect all extremely seriously. The Parish Safeguarding Officer is Brenda Cook (email: [email protected]) and Chester Diocese Safeguarding contacts can be found here .
