The Catholic Church in England and Wales is striving towards a culture of safeguarding where all are safe from harm and where every person is encouraged and enabled to enjoy the fullness of life in Jesus Christ through the prayerful, caring, nurturing, supportive and protective endeavours of the Catholic community, both individually and collectively.

​The Church recognises the personal dignity and rights of the children and vulnerable adults towards whom it has a special responsibility. The Church and individual members of it undertake to do all in their power to create a safe environment for children and vulnerable adults.

We are all responsible for the protection of children and vulnerable adults. If anyone has a concern about the well being of a child or vulnerable adult this should be communicated directly to the Parish Safeguarding Representative or the Diocesan Safeguarding Office. If a matter requires an immediate response, please call the police or social services.
