SAFEGUARDING

Jesus had strong words for those who misused and mistreated children. The PCC of St Peter's affirms the principles of the House of Bishops’ Policy for Safeguarding (‘Promoting a Safer Church’) and is committed to the nurturing, protection and safekeeping of children, young people and all vulnerable people in its care.

You can download and view our safeguarding policies below.

If you have a safeguarding concern, then please contact our Parish Safeguarding Officer, Lynn Adlam by email or the Rector on 0116 287 1604. If you wish to speak to the Diocesan Safeguarding Team, or to someone outside the church, their contact details are available here.

Safe Spaces – A service for victims and survivors of church-related abuse
 
Safe Spaces is a free and independent support service for anyone who has experienced abuse in relation to the Church of England, the Church in Wales, or the Catholic Church of England and Wales. This could be abuse by someone who holds any role in the church or is linked to participating in a church-led activity or group.
 
If you have been affected, however long ago, Safe Spaces can provide you with support. You do not have need to have told the police or the church authorities, and you do not have to still be involved with the church. Your information will not be shared without your consent, unless you or someone else is in immediate danger.   Safe Spaces can provide a range of help, including advocating with authorities and other agencies, giving emotional support, providing information (including information on church and police procedures), understanding your needs and working together on individual support plans.
