The parish of St John's is part of the Darent Valley Benefice, which is committed to the safeguarding of children, young people and adults. We follow the House of Bishops guidance and policies and have a Parish Safeguarding Officer (PSO). The Diocese of Rochester’s safeguarding pages (copy https://www.rochester.anglican.org/safeguarding/ into your web brower) contain vital links and information including contacts for the Diocesan Safeguarding Advisor (DSA) who advise 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.
