The Church of England serving God's people in the North Pennines
We are committed to the safeguarding of children, young people and adults, to the care and nurture of everyone who is involved in the life of our church families, and to promoting the wellbeing of everyone in the wider communities which we serve.
We follow the House of Bishops guidance and policies. Our Safeguarding Policy is available here,
and the Diocese of Newcastle's safeguarding pages contain vital links and information.
If you are concerned that a child or adult has been harmed or may be at risk of harm please contact the Diocesan Safeguarding Adviser (see below). If you have immediate concerns about the safety of someone, please contact the police and your local authority Children or Adults Services.
We are in the process of appointing a new Parish Safeguarding Officer.
In the meantime, please contact the Vicar, the Revd Mark Nash-Williams on 01434 382558 or by email, or the Diocesan Safeguarding Officer (see below)
The Diocesan Safeguarding Adviser, who advises our Parish Safeguarding Officer, is Carol Butler. She may be contacted on 07825 167016 or by email
