Safeguarding

Promoting a safer church

As a church we are 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 St.Edmundsbury & Ipswich’s safeguarding pages contain vital links and information including contacts for the Diocesan Safeguarding Advisor (DSA) who advise our PSO. 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.

The PCC has adopted the House of Bishops’ ‘Promoting a Safer Church; safeguarding policy statement’.

the Priest in Charge: email priest in charge

the Parish Safeguarding Officer Mrs Pam Bennett-King: email safeguarding officer
