Safeguarding Policy

Framfield PCC has adopted the House of Bishop's Promoting a Safer Church; Safeguarding Policy Statement. This may be viewed here: Promoting A Safer Church

The protection of children and vulnerable adults in our care remains an absolute priority.

Our Safeguarding Officer is Mrs Sarah Lawrence, assisted by Mrs Diana Kentish Barnes.

Currently, all those who act in a leadership role with children (e.g. Children’s' Church and Messy Church) are approved via the DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service).
