As part of The Diocese of Southwark, St Peter’s Church is committed to the safeguarding of children, young people and adults. St Peter’s takes the safeguarding of children, young people and adults who may be at risk of harm and neglect very seriously, and by following correct procedures and policies laid out by the Southwark Diocese, seeks to maintain a safe and welcoming environment for all.
More information on Safeguarding on the Southwark Diocese website can be found here: http://southwark.anglican.org/safeguarding/
The Diocese of Southwark have published ‘A Safe Church’ manual which includes Diocesan policies, procedures and guidelines for safeguarding children and adults who may be vulnerable, and responding to domestic abuse. ‘A Safe Church’ can be read or downloaded here. We also keep a copy in church.
Our Safeguarding Officers at St Peter’s are Charlotte Twomey and Joanna Mullin. You can contact them through the Parish Office: 01883-712512 / firstname.lastname@example.org
All enquires will be dealt with confidentially and sensitively.
