Our parish of Lynton: St Mary the Virgin is committed to safeguarding children, young people and adults from harm. We follow the House of Bishops guidance and policies and have our own Parish Safeguarding Officer (PSO). Our Diocese of Exeter’s safeguarding pages contain vital links and information including contacts for the Diocesan Safeguarding Advisor who advises our PSO. If you are concerned that a child or adult has been harmed or may be at risk of harm please contact the PSO  or the Diocesan Safeguarding Advisor  If you have immediate concerns about the safety of someone, please contact the police and your local authority’s children or adult social care service,

The Safeguarding Officer for St Mary's Church is  Lyn White
