The Church takes its obligations to protect Children and Vulnerable Adults very seriously and is fully committed to implement and comply with all the policies and procedures required by the Diocese.
To this end, we have appointed a Safeguarding Officer, Mrs Karen Dines, who should be contacted in the first instance by anyone who has concerns or needs to seek further clarification or advice on this important issue.
We are pleased that St Dunstan’s has just been awarded the SQP Level 1 from the Diocese of Chichester – please see below:
