We want our churches to be a safe place for all. If you have any concerns please contact our Safeguarding Officers , our parish priest or the Diocesan Safeguarding team. Please see our policies below.
Group Safeguarding Officers
A specialist national helpline (Tel 0800 80 20 20) has been set up to operate independently of the church. The Helpline is operated by the NSPCC . Anyone can use the helpline to provide information or to raise concerns regarding abuse within the Church of England context; whether they are reporting issues relating to children, adults or seeking to whistle blow about poor safeguarding practice

Most of the time at church we are like a big happy family. However even in very happy families people can have a bad day and even people we know and trust can upset us.
We want to help everyone have good days all of the time.
We try to make sure that people who have jobs in the church always behave well and in a way that is helpful to you. We never want anyone or anything in church to frighten you, confuse you or worry you. It is important that you tell us if something is upsetting you or if you are feeling worried about something that’s happening or something somebody is doing.
We have specially trained people who you can talk to and who you can ask for help. These people are good at safeguarding. This means they look after everyone’s safety. Caring for people is a very important part of our Christian life.
The people who can help you are the parish priest or the parish safeguarding officer.
