Safeguarding

Everyone has a responsibility to safeguard children, young people and adults who may be at risk of abuse. If you have a concern about the immediate safety of a child then you should talk dial 999.

We are committed to safeguarding children, young people and adults, and recognise the importance of following good safeguarding procedures. At our PCC meeting on 5th June 2019 we reviewed our safeguarding procedures and have adopted the Church of England’s “Promoting a Safer Church” Safeguarding Policy, copies of which are available online at: www.rochester.anglican.org/safeguarding/for-parishes
