The parish of St Mark & All Saints, Reading is committed to the safeguarding of children, young people and adults. We follow the House of Bishops guidance and policies and have our own Parish Safeguarding Officer(s), PSOs. The Diocese of Oxford’s safeguarding pages contain vital links and information including contacts for the Diocesan Safeguarding Advisor (DSA) who advise our PSOs. If you are concerned that a child or adult has been harmed or may be at risk of harm please contact the DSA. If you have immediate concerns about the safety of someone, please contact the police and your local authority Children or Adults Services.
We are committed to the safeguarding, care and nurture of everyone within our community. Our attached safeguarding Policy can be found below and this was approved at the PCC (Parochial Church Council) meeting on 10th September 2020.
Our Parish Safeguarding Officer is Alice Sonaike
