At St Michael’s we believe the protection of children, young people and vulnerable adults involved in our activities is the responsibility of our whole Church. It is important, therefore, that everyone who participates in the life of our Church must play their part in promoting a safer Church for all. To see how we do this, please see our Safeguarding Policy and Action Plan.
In order to ensure the implementation of the Policy, the Parochial Church Council (PCC) has appointed Bill Macdonald as its Parish Safeguarding Officer. Bill should be contacted on 07768 711777 in respect of any issues relating to the Church's safeguarding of children, young people or vulnerable adults.
The PCC has also appointed Michelle Durnell as the PCC Children's Advocate. Children and their families are invited to share informally with Michelle any joys, thoughts, concerns or delights about the Church's work with young people.
