Safeguarding 

Promoting a safer church


At Grace Church, we take the issue of safeguarding very seriously. We believe that it is both our responsibility as active members in our local community and as those who love and serve the Lord to be up to date with the latest safeguarding advice and to have policies in place for safeguarding those at any and all Grace Church activities. 


If you are concerned that someone you know is at risk of, or is being abused, or presents a risk to others, please seek advice from a Safeguarding Officer or if necessary report the matter to the Local Authority Social Care Services or the Police without delay.

Grace Church Safeguarding Officers:
Laura Likissa (Lead)
Dan Collins (Deputy)

Please don’t send sensitive information via email, but get in touch, providing a contact number, and our safeguarding officer will get back to you asap.
