As a parish we are committed to helping everyone learn and worship in a safe environment. We have adopted the safeguarding policy and procedures of Southwark Diocese, ‘A Safe Church’. This includes these policies:

Policy for safeguarding children

Policy for safeguarding vulnerable adults

Policy for responding to domestic abuse

Our recruitment process for those working with children, young people, or vulnerable adults includes DBS check, references, and induction. The PCC reviews our practices on a regular basis to ensure that we comply with our Safeguarding policy.

Our Safeguarding officers, Liz Tackley and Caitlin Greenwood, oversee all our safeguarding arrangements. They can be contacted via the parish office.

The Diocesan Safeguarding Adviser is Kate Singleton, heads a team based at Trinity House in Southwark. A member of this team can be contacted on 020 7939 9423 (office hours) or 07982 279713 (out of hours).
