Our Mission statement reflects our determination to be a loving presence in our communities. We recognise that loving requires us to actively promote the welfare of all who are vulnerable, whether they are children or adults.
We work together to prevent harm from occurring or to manage risk. This is Safeguarding. Each of our Churches have a Safeguarding Officer and you can find out who they are and how to contact them by clicking on the individual Churches below.
What to do if you have a concern
If you are worried about a child or an adult it it best to seek advice, no matter how unsure you are. There are several people who you can contact:
Rev'd Sarah Tierney (Priest in Charge)
Click on the relevent Church below to see who is the Safegaurding Officer. Or if your concern is about someone in Stroxton, Wyville with Hungerton or Woolsthorpe you can conact the Priest in Charge or the Parish Safeguarding Officer for Denton or Harlaxton.
If you want to speak to somene outside the parishes then please contact the Diocean Safeguarding Team.
