Help and Safeguarding

All children, young people and adults in our Parish regardless of age, gender, ability or ethnic origin have a right to be protected from all forms of harm, abuse, neglect and exploitation.

Our Parish takes its duty to protect everyone extremely seriously. We have adopted the national Church of England’s robust policies, procedures and guidelines.
