Safeguarding Children &Vulnerable Adults


My name is Jackie Grant and I am the St. Mildred's Parish Safeguarding Coordinator.


St. Mildred’s Church has a duty of care towards vulnerable people using our church. They include:


  • Children
  • Young people
  • Vulnerable adults

We take the protection of these people very seriously. We work within the safeguarding policies laid down by the diocese.


My role is to ensure that everyone working with children, young people or vulnerable adults has access to the safeguarding policies and procedures, understands the importance of following those procedures and knows how to report any suspicions. I am responsible for ensuring that all those who work with these groups of people in our church has a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check every five years.


I am also a member of the Child Protection Committee which meets as necessary to discuss any issues.


If you have any concerns about child or vulnerable adult protection you should contact me, in the first instance, on 01580 762731.
