Child and Adult Safeguarding

If you are concerned about possible abuse – whether physical or emotional – of a child or vulnerable adult, contact one of our Safeguarding Officers for guidance:
 
Gill Thomson - gill.thomson@stoswaldschurch.org.uk  - 01923 226 850 or 07739 181574
Catherine Farman -  07958 365008
Alan Restarick - 07821 630833

We take the matter of safeguarding extremely seriously and, in line with recommendations, all volunteers working with children and vulnerable adults undergo the appropriate checks.
 
We have multiple reporting lines to ensure any concerns can be raised without being compromised.
 
A comprehensive safeguarding policy is in place and is regularly reviewed. You can download our safeguarding policy here.
 
You can also see our Safeguarding summary document here.
 

We would also like to provide a guide with some ideas of who you may wish to reach out to for support if you, or someone you know, needs it. Please click here for some suggestions.
