Church of England Diocese of Exeter Appledore

St Mary's

St Mary's takes safeguarding very seriously and the PCC have adopted the Exeter Diocese Safeguarding Handbook, promoting a safer Church.

Safeguarding children, young people and vulnerable adults is the responsibility of us all whether they are in the communities in which we live or part of our Christian family.

If you have a concern regarding a child, young person or adult who may be at risk of harm please speak to our Team Rector, Revd. Derek Arnold T: 07789 631346.

The Diocesan Safeguarding Team’s contact details can be found at this link

If you are a young person and you feel unhappy about something happening to you, you can call Childline on 0800 11 11.

The Diocese of Exeter’s safeguarding pages contain vital links and information including contacts for the Diocesan Safeguarding Advisor (DSA) who advise our PSOs. 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.

We have regularly helped the Foodbank and decided to do a Lenten collection based on a 'tin a day' for the Foodbank, then Easter eggs for the Women's Refuge.
