Safeguarding of Children and Vulnerable Adults


Safeguarding is very important and we want everyone to feel safe at St Stephen’s.

Safeguarding protects both those visiting or attending an event or service, and those in leadership roles. You can find a copy of our Parish child protection policy, signed and dated, on the wall in the church building and in the church hall.

The overall responsibility for safeguarding rests with the Vicar, and the PCC (Parochial Church Council) who have appointed Hugh Stebbing as their Parish Safeguarding Representative.

All of our children’s leaders, Clergy and key people have undertaken full safeguarding training and have been DBS checked.
