Safeguarding Children & Vulnerable Adults

Our parish values and encourages the participation of children and young people in all parish activities that will help their spiritual, physical, emotional and social development.

The parish recognises the dignity and rights of all children and is committed to ensuring their safety and well being at all times.

The parish recognises that all involved in working with children have a special duty of care towards them. There are procedures and a code of practice in place to implement this policy.

We are also committed to reviewing our policy and good practice annually.

  • The parish has two contact people. All concerns and/or complaints can be brought to them for immediate attention.
  • The parish contact people will respond promptly to all concerns and report to the Diocesan designated person.

All concerns and/or complaints will be followed through in a timely and efficient manner.
