Safeguarding is something that we are all responsible for and it is critical that the correct protocols are followed whenever we are engaging with the most vulnerable members of our parish.

Dean Francis is the Safeguarding Representative for the parish. His role is to be a point of contact for anyone who needs advice on the safeguarding policy and good practices which must be followed when setting up a group which involves children or vulnerable adults.

If you are thinking about setting up a group or activity aimed at children or vulnerable adults and you want advice on how to go about this, or if you already run a group and want to ensure that you are following the correct procedures, then please contact Dean.
