The Diocese is committed to safeguarding as an integral part of the life and ministry of the Church. Supported by and in compliance with the policies and procedures of the Catholic Safeguarding Standards Agency in England and Wales, we are striving towards a culture of safeguarding where all are safe from harm and abuse and where everyone is encouraged and enabled to enjoy the fullness of life In Jesus Christ through the prayerful, nurturing, supportive and protective endeavours of the Catholic Community, both individually and collectively.
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.
As a church family we all care for and look out for the wellbeing of others. If you believe that someone has been or is likely to be harmed, you can refer that concern in complete confidentiality to Guilia De Rosa who is our Safeguarding representative in the parish. Guilia De Rosa is contactable via the Parish office on 01273 302903
You can also talk to Fr. Max, other clergy or get advice from the Diocesan Safeguarding Coordinator (DSC) on 01293 651148.
