Safeguarding Policy

In accordance with the Safeguarding Policy set down by the Church of England, St Martin’s Church, Low Marple has adopted the policy compiled by Chester Diocese which in turn is based upon the national Church of England’s procedures and guidelines.

St Martin’s is committed to providing a safe church and takes its duty and obligation to protect all, particularly the vulnerable, seriously. We value every member and visitor and seek to provide an open, honest and trustworthy environment.

In the event of any reported concern, St Martin’s will act promptly and in accordance with the procedures laid down in the Safeguarding Policy.

For further information, or if you have any concerns, please contact Helen Rogers, St Martin’s Safeguarding Co-coordinator
