Church of England Diocese of Manchester St. John, Flixton


We take the safeguarding of children, young people and adults very seriously. We work to prevent abuse from occurring, seek to protect those that are at risk of being abused and respond well to those that have been abused.

Our parish safeguarding policy statement can be found at the bottom of this page.

If you are concerned that a child or vulnerable adult has been harmed or is at risk of harm, please do not hesitate to contact the Church or Diocese Safeguarding personnel for advice and support.

If you wish to report an allegation of abuse from the past, or in the present, please do not hesitate to contact us. Your information will be treated appropriately and kept confidential.
