As a Church within the Diocese of St Edmundsbury and Ipswich we take our safeguarding responsibilities very seriously and are committed to implementing the House of Bishops safeguarding policies and good practice guidance.
We have a dedicated safeguarding lead for the Benefice of Monks Eleigh who holds overall responsibility for safeguarding.
All of our leaders and children’s work volunteers go through a process of safer recruitment which includes a DBS screening and regular updates to their safeguarding training in line with national safeguarding training.
Safeguarding lead for Monks Eleigh Benefice is Olga Lancaster.
All and any safeguarding matters can also be raised in writing to:
