Corpus Christi Parish is committed to the Safeguarding Policies of the Catholic Church in England and Wales, to protect children, young people and vulnerable adults from any form of abuse or maltreatment and to promote a safe environment for them.
This commitment flows from the fact that we are all made in the image of God and the Church’s common belief in the dignity and uniqueness of every human life. We start from the principle that each person has a right to expect the highest level of care and protection, love, encouragement and respect that we can give.
We will liaise closely and openly with statutory agencies to ensure that any concerns or allegations of abuse that are raised are promptly reported and properly investigated, victims supported and perpetrators held to account.
Our Diocese co-operates fully with CSAS, the Catholic Safeguarding Advisory Service, this aims to help our Church become an example of best practice when considering the Safeguarding of children and vulnerable adults, and develop a "culture of vigilance" to ensure that children and vulnerable adults in our care are kept safe from harm
Should you have any reason for concern about a young person or vulnerable adult then you may bring your concerns to the attention of our Parish Safeguarding Lead.
Our Safeguarding Lead is: Mike Airey
