 Safeguarding in the Parish

The Parish Safeguarding Officer is Angela Spink assisted by Desmond Duffus – appointed by, and reporting to the PCC. St Philip’s works to the Diocesan guidelines as set out in “A Safe Church”  – available for reference in the Church or from the Diocesan website

Our safeguarding policies were reviewed, without amendment, by the PCC on 15th March 2018:

SG: Children 2018 – 2019
SG: Adults 2018 – 2019
SG: Domestic Abuse 2018 – 2019

A written report on Safeguarding in the Parish was presented to the APCM on the 22nd April 2017 and can be read here

2017: The House of Bishops has recently published Promoting a Safer Church policy statement. This sets out the Church’s commitment to making church a safer place for all.  This is a standalone policy statement, which was previously part of a wider document.  Updated practical guidance to support this will be published later in the year by the National Safeguarding Team at Church House, Westminster.
