We take the safety of everyone who comes to our church and any of its activities very seriously. So, we work to Safeguarding guidelines provided by the Church of England, for both vulnerable adults and children. This policy can be viewed here. There is further information and more detail on the Church of England website - please click here.
We have a Parish safeguarding officer - Chrissie Pepler - who works with the Church Wardens and the Parochial Church Council to ensure that our safeguarding policy is implemented and regularly reviewed. Our Parish policy can be found here.
All paid and volunteer workers are recruited using the Safer Recruitment process, using guidelines provided by the Diocese of Hereford - please click here.
Safeguarding awareness training can be provided for all volunteers through the Diocese of Hereford. For further information please ask Chrissie Pepler.
