Safeguarding Policy

Every year the church reviews its Safeguarding Policy, which you can find in the church, Church House and Hall. Alternatively, you can download our Safeguarding Policy here

Reporting a Safeguarding Concern

If you are concerned that a child or an adult is, or may be, at risk of abuse this should be reported immediately (and certainly within 24 hours) to the Church Safeguarding Officer or the clergy listed above.
If it is a non-emergency situation you can report this either in person or telephone to the Safeguarding Officer or clergy, and they will then contact the Diocese Safeguarding Officer and ensure that we respond appropriately. We will do everything we can to support the person at risk.
If it is an Emergency situation, and you believe the child or adult is in immediate danger of significant harm, then you should call 999 before reporting it to the Safeguarding Officer or clergy.
