St Augustine's Parish takes safeguarding very seriously and the PCC have adopted the Rochester 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 Parish Safeguarding Officer, Mrs Penny Cadman

Alternatively, you may wish to contact our Priest in Charge, the Revd. Amanda Maskell
