At Grace Church, 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.

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.
