Children and Vulnerable Adults

The Clergy and the Parochial Church Council have adopted the Diocesan Policies and Procedures regarding the safeguarding of children and young people, vulnerable adults and those in abusive relationships.

If you are concerned that a child or a vulnerable adult has been harmed or is at risk of harm, then contact the Parish Safeguarding Officer on 01252 627455.

                                    Don't Delay!!!

We aim to provide a safe environment where all children and young people are nurtured and protected, and where all are able to worship and pursue their faith journey with encouragement and in safety.

We follow the statutory procedural framework  and the Church of England policies and practices for the safeguarding of children, young people and vulnerable adults.

The Diocese of Guildford also employ a Safeguarding Advisor and has fully documented policies and procedures - full details can be found through the Guildford Diocesan Website

Whistle Blowing

The Parochial Church Council also encourages Whistle Blowing and undertakes to give full legal and personal protection to anyone who raises any concern regarding the safeguarding of children, and young adults and vulnerable adults.
