If a child or adult is in immediate danger or requires medical attention, call the police and/or social services immediately on 999.
Safeguarding is the care and protection given to the vulnerable: this includes children, young people, the elderly and anyone who is vulnerable due to their circumstances or the role they may have when dealing with other people or children.
Our churches aim to provide a place where all people feel welcomed, respected and safe from abuse. We are all working towards creating a safe and non-discriminatory environment by being aware of some of the particular situations that create vulnerability. Everyone in our churches has a responsibility with regard to safeguarding and the protection of children and vulnerable adults
If you need to make contact with the person with safeguarding responsibilities in any of the churches of our benefice, please use the CONTACT US form on this website, and your enquiry will be dealt with speedily and your enquiry will be passed to the relevant person with complete confidentiality.
