Safeguarding is a priority in all our churches.
We are committed to following government and Church of England guidelines on safeguarding children and vulnerable adults and good working practice, including safer recruitment of volunteers and paid workers.
Each parish works to a formal safeguarding policy and procedure which can be viewed on each parishes webpage.
