Church of England Diocese of Canterbury

Safeguarding

Our Parish Safeguarding Officer is: Annette Stewart - Tel: 236244 - [email protected] <span style="font-size: 1rem;">and can be contacted about any safeguarding related matter. 

In ensuring high standards of practice in safeguarding we are also supported by the Diocese of Canterbury's safeguarding advisors, who work closely with the Guernsey Police and specialist staff of the States of Guernsey Committee for Health and Social Care.

The Safeguarding Advisers are qualified and experienced social care practitioners who can provide advice and guidance to parishes and others in the diocese on child and adult protection. They can offer advice, discuss any protection matters and clarify anything in the Deanery Guidelines. They are always ready to work with you to plan a detailed response to any protection issue, taking into account all aspects of your particular situation. Please do not hesitate to contact them; they are always very ready to help.
