Safeguarding - overview
St Michael's church is committed to safeguarding all children, young people and vulnerable adults.
The Church of England (House of Bishops) has laid down a policy statement and guidance on safeguarding, under the title of Promoting a Safer Church, and all parishes must have regard to these documents.

St Michael's Parochial Church Council (PCC) adopted the policy statement and guidance at its meeting in February 2019. Please refer to the Our Policy page for details.
Part of the guidance recommends that parishes should appoint their own Safeguarding Officers. Please refer to the Local Contacts page for details of this appointment and other useful safeguarding contacts.
