Safeguarding

safeguarding

At All Saints Peckham we love God, love each other, and we love our community.

Therefore, our aim is to create a safe environment for everybody.

A priority is to protect the vulnerable. We all need to be aware of this and follow the procedures that underpin our safeguarding policies as a church.

These groups include children, young people and vulnerable adults.

If you have a concern regarding a safeguarding issue, please click on the link below and fill out the form. Thank you.

We take the safeguarding and care of children and vulnerable adults very
seriously at All Saints Peckham.
