Caring for children and vulnerable adults.

Great St Mary’s is committed to safeguarding all those who attend the worship and other activities that we offer. Safeguarding promotes the welfare of children and vulnerable adults, and includes all actions to protect them from harm.

  • Great St Mary’s accepts the duty of care for children and vulnerable adults.
  • Great St Mary’s follows recommended safeguarding practice in recruiting, training and supporting our ordained and lay ministers, our employees and our volunteers.
  • We follow the House of Bishops’ Policy, ‘Protecting All God’s Children’ (2010) and the Diocese of Ely Safeguarding Policy (2012) on which our policy is based.
