Church of England Diocese of Rochester Westerham


We are committed to implementing the House of Bishops’ safeguarding policies and good practice guidance. Once a year - with the last review on 24th May 2018 - the Parochial Church Council (PCC) review and adopt "Promoting A Safer Church: Safeguarding policy statement for children, young people and adults" (attached below). 

Our aim is to provide a safe culture and to ensure that people working with children and adults when they are vulnerable are correctly trained and vetted. Issues will not be ignored and we encourage a culture of caring for victims/subjects of allegations and perpetrators. "Safeguarding" appears on every PCC meeting agenda, to look at progress and be informed of any issues

If you have any questions or concerns regarding Safeguarding, please contact either our Parish Safeguarding Officer or the Vicar.
