Within the Parish, we take our safeguarding responsibilities very seriously. Safeguarding is part of our core faith and an integral feature of Christian life in our parish churches. The welfare of the child, young person and vulnerable adult is at all times paramount, and takes precedence over all other considerations.


Please speak to our Parish Safeguarding Representative if you have any concerns for the well-being of a child or adult, or about the behaviour of someone towards a child or adult.


Our current Parish Safeguarding Representative is Rob Palmer.
