SAFEGUARDING INFO

Safeguarding
I want to assure you of our commitment to safeguarding children, young people and other vulnerable people in the church, both here in the Land’s End Benefice and in the CofE at a Diocesan and national level. We take great care in our recruitment of leaders, staff and volunteers, to ensure that those in positions of trust understand their responsibilities towards those in our community who may be more vulnerable. As a church community, we are called to care for one another, so if you have any concerns that anyone has been, is being or is at risk of being abused, please report it to one of the clergy, our safeguarding officers.

Ensuring that children and young people as well as adults are kept safe whilst in our care is an integral part of our church life. If you have any concerns about safeguarding please contact:
