Safeguarding

St Michael and all Angels Southwick is committed to safeguarding children, young people and adults and creating protective and supportive environments where all people, and especially those who may be vulnerable, are able to worship and pursue their faith journey in safety.

We follow the national legal and procedural framework for safeguarding children and adults, and Church of England policy and practice.

The safeguarding officer for the Parish is Mary Kelly. Please contact her on 07702 665917 or ring the church office for her email address.
