Safeguarding

Promoting a Safer Church

The care and protection of children, young people and vulnerable adults involved in church activities is the responsibility of everyone who participates in the life of the church.

The Parochial Church Council has adopted the Church of England’s policy – Promoting a Safer Church (click here to download).

We are committed to providing good care for young people and vulnerable adults within the church community and have agreed the safeguarding policy and guidance agreed by the House of Bishops.
