Safeguarding

Promoting a Safer Church

The care and protection of the children, young people and adults at all the churches in the Watershed Benefice is the responsibility of everyone and it is important to us.

If you are concerned that someone is being abused, is at risk of being abused, or presents a risk to others, please share your concerns immediately.
