At Holy Trinity Wallington we take the safeguarding of children and vulnerable adults very seriously. We are committed to safeguarding children, young people, victims/perpetrators of domestic abuse and vulnerable adults. The PCC has adopted the Church of England’s policies and best practise on safeguarding which may be found on the Church of England’s website: https://www/churchofengland.org/more/safeguarding
All of our volunteers working with children and vulnerable adults have a Disclosure and Barring Service check (DBS) and we seek to follow our safeguarding policy below.
Our Safeguarding Parish Officer is Carol Lambe. For more information or to contact her about concerns, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Alternatively you can contact the Vicar, James Hills or the Church Wardens Anthony Reeves and Jackie Passmore.
