Safeguarding

“Safeguarding is at the heart of our Christian faith; ...it means the action the Church takes to promote a safer culture in all our churches” (Archbishop Justin Welby, 2018).

Safeguarding is being aware of others and their needs. This means reporting situations where needs are not being met, or where individuals of any age appear to be in a vulnerable situation.

If you have a Safeguarding concern or query, you can contact any of the following people:

  • Rosie Norman, Parish Safeguarding Officer, on 01722 322537 (Parish Office), or
  • Michael Humphreys, Deputy Parish Safeguarding Officer, on 01722 322537 (Parish Office), or
  • Revd Kelvin Inglis, Rector, on 01722 239463.

St Thomas’s takes its responsibilities surrounding the safeguarding of children, young people, and adults who may be at risk very seriously, and works in partnership with the Diocese of Salisbury to ensure that we work in accordance with best practice at all times.

St Thomas’s has implemented up-to-date safeguarding policies recommended by the Church of England and Salisbury Diocese. As in any organisation, this process is continuous: we all share the responsibility to promote a safer culture, and we must all be aware of the needs of those who may be vulnerable and respond accordingly.
