Here at St. Mary’s, safeguarding is not just about children, youth or vulnerable adults. It is about all of us. We have adopted the same safeguarding policy as the Diocese of Guildford, which is also the same as the safeguarding policy for the Church of England.

If you would like to raise any safeguarding concern, a disclosure has been made to you, or you would like to make a disclosure, please contact any of the Parish Clergy or our Parish Safeguarding Officer. In your email, please do not outline any of the details of the concern or disclosure, rather let us know that you have a concern or disclosure, along with the contact information that is most appropriate and you are most comfortable sharing and you will be contacted within 24 hours. If the concern or disclosure is related to any of the Parish Clergy, please only contact the Parish Safeguarding Officer. If the concern or disclosure is related to the Parish Safeguarding Officer, please only contact one of the Parish Clergy.
