'Safeguarding' is the umbrella term covering child protection and the protection of vulnerable adults. This page was reconfigured in June 2015.

Updated Listing = latest updates


We recognise that, to achieve a safe environment, we need to create an informed, caring atmosphere where the unthinkable can be thought and discussed. Clear guidelines, training and advice need to be given in order to help and support those giving their time to nurture children, young people and adults within the Church. This page has details and links for those who are safeguarding children, young people and vulnerable adults. If you cannot find what you need, please do not hesitate to contact us.
