Safeguarding Information

The Parochial Church Council takes seriously its obligations and responsibilities to protect and safeguard the welfare of any child, young person or vulnerable adult within the church community. The PCC has appointed a Parish Safeguarding Representative, to whom any allegation or concerns about abuse should be directed:

Telephone: 07791 012613

Please call 999 if a child or adult is in immediate danger of significant or serious harm.

The nominated person is not one of those normally working or volunteering with children, young people or vulnerable adults. She will follow the guidelines and procedures for responding to any allegations of abuse.
