Safeguarding in the church community to make our churches safe for children, young people and vulnerable adults is everyone’s responsibility.

At St Georges we take our safeguarding responsibility VERY seriously and we have our own safeguarding policy.

If you have a concern over ANY issue with regards to this, please feel free to contact our Safeguarding Officer.
