Safeguarding at Stoneleigh

We believe it is our God given responsibility to ensure everyone who comes into contact with us is safe and treated with respect and care and so we have a robust safeguarding policy and procedure.

Our Leadership team and all volunteers are trained in Safeguarding awareness and to an appropriate level and we have a designated Parish Safeguarding Officer who with the oversight of the Vicar, ensures all safeguarding issues and concerns are handled appropriately.
