We take the safeguarding of children and vulnerable adults very seriously, and adhere to the Carlisle Diocese Safeguarding People Policy.
A new policy has just been introduced and information about this, and about how it applies here, will be available on this page soon.
Any safeguarding concerns should be addressed either to the Vicar, or to our Safeguarding Officer, Bernadette Calvey. They can be contacted via the church office 01539 721248.
