We take seriously the safety and wellbeing of all volunteers, employees, guests and visitors to the church. We pay particular attention to the care of vulnerable adults and children.

If for any reason you have cause for concern over the care and welcome we are providing vulnerable people, please do not hesitate to contact our Safeguarding Coordinator Dr Alan Stanhope 01872 862397 or our Vicar, Rev Marc Baker 01872 260134.

Alternatively you might like to speak with someone outside of the parish, in which case contact Sarah Acraman, Diocesan Safeguarding Adviser 01872 27435.

Out of hours please phone 01208 251300 for an urgent safeguarding response from Social Care, or if you believe somebody is at immediate risk of harm please phone the police on 999.

If you are concerned that someone you know is at risk of, or is being abused, or presents a risk to others, please seek advice from a Safeguarding Adviser or report the matter to the Local Authority Social Care Services or the Police without delay.
