Church of England Diocese of Leeds St. John, Wakefield

Safeguarding

St John's 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 have implemented the safeguarding policies of the national church, and endeavour 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 Safeguarding Officer, Martyn Lawson 01924 378101, or the Vicar, Revd Stephanie Buchannan on 01924 371029.

You can also contact the Diocese of Leeds Safeguarding Officer, Jenny Leccardi on 07872 005189.
