Parish Safeguarding

As a church we take our safeguarding responsibilities towards children and vulnerable adults very seriously and endeavour to ensure that all those within our congregation can enjoy our services and activities in a safe way.  We have a defined, robust recruitment policy for both paid staff and the many volunteers that are so essential to the smooth running of our church activities.  We also review the latest guidance issued by the relevant church and statutory agencies and implement their recommendations on a timely basis. 

Our safeguarding officers are Margaret Calver (children) and Morag Hardinge (adults) and they can be contacted by email at with any concerns you may have or for more information.

Please take a look at the following links which give more detail of our Safeguarding Policies at St George's.
