At All Saints we are committed to the safety of all our members and take Safeguarding seriously. The welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults is of paramount importance to us and we aim to do everything that we can to provide a safe and caring environment whilst they attend Services and activities. All our children’s and youth leaders, Readers, Clergy and our Bell Tower Captain hold current enhanced DBS checks appropriate to their role and receive regular safeguarding training. Our Safeguarding contact is Angela Morley. If you have any concerns about the possible abuse of a child, young person or vulnerable adult, please contact Angela Morley on 01787 22740, email: firstname.lastname@example.org
On the 15th March 2018 All Saints’ PCC unanimously agreed to adopt ‘The House of Bishops’ ‘Promoting a Safer Church‘ Safeguarding Policy Statement and ‘The House of Bishops’ and Diocesan Safeguarding Policies and Practice Guide.
