We are committed to the support, nurture and protection of all in our church community.

At the PCC meeting held on 20 May 2019 the PCC of Parish of Haslemere adopted the Church Of England “Promoting a Safer Church” Policy Statement, national policies and Practice Guidance of the House of Bishops and supporting diocesan safeguarding protocols.

Promoting a Safer Church” sets out the Church of England’s commitment to making the church a safer place for all.

The Policies and Practice Guidance applies to all Church bodies and officers and under new legislation all authorised clergy, bishops, archdeacons licensed readers and lay workers, church wardens and PCCs must have due regard to safeguarding guidance issued by the House of Bishops.
