SAFEGUARDING OF CHILDREN AND VULNERABLE ADULTS

Our parish is committed to the safeguarding policies of the diocese and of the Catholic Church in England and Wales, to promote a safe environment for children, young people and vulnerable adults and to protect them from abuse or maltreatment.  The work of the diocese in this area can be found at its Safeguarding of Children and Adults website and national policies at the Catholic Safeguarding Advisory Service website www.csas.uk.net
