Church of England Diocese of Birmingham St. Mark, Londonderry

Safeguarding Adults and Children

The Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) of Christ Church, Oldbury, St John and St Michael, Langley and St Mark, Londonderry recognise the need to safeguard the children, young people and adults in our care and guard against the possibility of any form of abuse of children, young people and adults by persons who may be acting in the name of our parish.

We aim to create a safe environment for the nurture and development of children, young people and adults, in order for them to feel valued and confident to ask for support and help. We strive to ensure that our policies and procedures uphold the importance of our responsibility to protect and safeguard the welfare of children, young people and adults entrusted to our care.

If you would like report concerns or discuss our policies and procedures, please contact our Vicar, Rev’d Kathy Evans on 0121 552 9509 or our Safeguarding Co-ordinator, Elden Small on 07984 364626.
