We are committed to the safeguarding, care and nurture of everyone within our community.

In common with the whole Church of England, at St Chad's we will:

  • Promote a safer environment and culture
  • Safely recruit and support all those with any responsibility related to children and vulnerable adults within the Church
  • Respond promptly to every safeguarding concern or allegation 
  • Care pastorally for victims/survivors of abuse and other affected persons
  • Care pastorally for those who are the subject of concerns or allegations of abuse and other affected persons
  • Respond to those that may pose a present risk to others

These policy commitments are based on our five foundations:

  • Gospel
  • Human rights and the law
  • Core principles
  • Good safeguarding practice
  • Learning from the past

If you have a concern and need to make contact about a safeguarding issue, please contact one of the Safeguarding Officers: Judy Fletcher (07795 217 637) or Leslie Bell (
