The parish takes its responsibilities with regard to Safeguarding very seriously.

We recognise that everyone has different levels of vulnerability and that each of us may be regarded as at risk at some time in our lives. It is the responsibility of each of us to prevent physical, emotional, sexual, financial and spiritual abuse.

Working within the guidelines of the Church of England and the Diocese of Newcastle we will report any abuse that we discover or suspect.
