Safeguarding

We have three Safeguarding Representatives within our Parish and they work closely with the Diocesan Safeguarding Office. Together, we support the ministry of the Church by providing a professional and robust support around the protection of children, young people and adults at risk, to ensure that worshipping communities are safe places where all have a positive experience of the Church in which they feel loved, accepted and safe.

We are committed to treating all individuals with dignity and respect, and any issues dealt with are managed in a sensitive and caring manner. All volunteers and employees working with vulnerable groups must agree to adhere to the Catholic Church’s National Safeguarding Policies before they can be appointed.
