Safeguarding Information

Our Churches are committed to safeguarding children, young people and adults from harm. We fully support and endorse the Church of England’s safeguarding policy for children, young people and adults  and each Parish has it’s own Parish Safeguarding Officer (PSO). If you are concerned that a child or adult has been harmed or may be at risk of harm please get in touch with one of the Safeguarding Contacts. 

Call 999 if a child or adult is in immediate danger of significant or serious harm
