Our parish is committed to the Safeguarding policies of the Catholic Church in England & Wales, to taking all reasonable steps to protect children, young people and vulnerable adults from any form of abuse or maltreatment and to promoting a safe environment for them.

We will liaise closely and openly with statutory agencies to ensure that any concerns or allegations of abuse that are raised are promptly reported and properly responded to, victims supported and perpetrators held to account.
