At St Edith's we are committed to the protection, safeguarding, care and nurture of all children and vulnerable adults who visit us and who are in our community.

Please contact us for details of our policy and procedures which have been developed in line with guidance from the Church of England. The aim is to ensure a safe environment for everyone who wishes to worship with us, visit or contribute to its activities.
