PARISH SAFEGUARDING

Broadwater Parish is committed to creating a safe environment across all our churches and believes that those leading, at all levels, must demonstrate a duty of care to safeguard all children and vulnerable adults from harm. All children and vulnerable adults have a right to protection, and the needs of all people who may be particularly vulnerable (either permanently or temporarily) must be taken into account when considering their involvement in church life and the support that is offered to enable them to live fulfilling Christian lives.

If you have a concern:

  • If the danger is immediate: dial 999 now
  • Concerned about a child?      Phone: 0808 800 5000
  • Concerned about an adult?    Phone: 01243 642121
