Safeguarding

St Peter’s Church takes safeguarding very seriously, both in relation to children and adults who may be considered vulnerable. 

Parish clergy and those with leadership responsibilities or engaged in ministry with children and vulnerable adults are all DBS checked and have completed training appropriate to their roles.

We annually review our safeguarding arrangements to ensure that they are up-to-date and comply with best practice.

Our parish safeguarding officer is: Helen Dowling
