Safeguarding

The Parochial Church Council (PCC) of The Parish of Garretts Green recognises 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.

Our Parish Safeguarding Coordinator is Revd Susan Larkin who ensures all of the PCC, the Pastoral Visiting Team and anyone else eligible receives training and a DBS check. Susan updates us at PCC meetings regarding the latest training and information
