“Being loved and being kept safe go to the very core of the Church’s Ministry to children and vulnerable adults. The work of safeguarding has to be seen within the overall mission of the Church. As she seeks to protect the vulnerable and weak, the Church needs to ‘act justly,love tenderly and walk humbly with God’. (Micah 6:8).
Our Commitment to Safeguarding:
The Diocese will ensure that any allegations of a safeguarding matter are responded to promptly and liaise openly with statutory authorities to support investigations, responding sensitively and compassionately to those in need, and ensuring perpetrators are held to account.
We affirm our undertaking for the Diocese of Clifton to be a place where all come in confidence, and that they will be cared for and loved by their Christian Community.
As a parish and as a diocese we are committed to the safeguarding of all children and vulnerable adults.
Our parish recognises and follows the CSAS (Catholic Safeguarding Advisory Service) policies and procedures.

Our Parish Safeguarding representative is Deacon Paul Brandon.
