Promoting a safer church: Safeguarding Contacts and Policies

The care and protection of children, young people and adults involved in Church activities is the responsibility of everyone who participates in the life of the Church.

If you are concerned that someone you know is at risk of, or is being abused, or presents a risk to others, please seek advice from a Safeguarding Adviser or if necessary report the matter to the Local Authority Social Care Services or the Police without delay.
