At St Paul's, we do our utmost to ensure that everyone on site is kept safe.  All staff and volunteers working with children and vulnerable adults must undergo a safer recruitment process and an enhanced DBS disclosure.

We also expect them to be fully conversant with the safeguarding policy. As a church, we have adopted the Church of England's safeguarding policy 'Promoting a Safer Church' which can be viewed here.

Please find contact details below, if you have any concerns or queries about children or adults in the church, either that they are suffering harm, or are causing harm to others.

To view our procedure for responding to concerns or allegations, see here.  

To report concerns please download, print and fill out this recording concerns form which can be viewed here.
