Safeguarding is an area which we take very seriously in our parish and we work hard to develop a culture of safeguarding where all feel safe within the life of the parish.  We have adopted the House of Bishop's Safeguarding Policy and Practice Guidance.  Our PCC has formally adopted this and signed the Safeguarding Policy Statement Promoting a Safer Church.

Our Parish Safeguarding Officer is Sarah Gardner.  Alongside Sarah, we have a dedicated safeguarding team consisting of:
Rev'd Peter Lillicrap, Tina Cockshaw, Matthew Rowley.
The Diocesan Safeguarding Team can be contacted at Clayton House, Walker Office Park, Blackburn,BB1 2QE on 01254 503088

If the concern involves one of our chaplains, please use the contact details below:
