Safeguarding Children and Vulnerable Adults

We follow best practice in the way we work with young people and vulnerable adults.

Everyone who works with children or vulnerable adults in the Parish has a clear job description, provides two referees and requires a DBS (formally CRB) disclosure. Mary Croome, our Parish Safeguarding Representative, is responsible for the administration and checking of new volunteers and is a contact point for advice and concern about matters concerning safeguarding.
