The Netherton and Sefton Team takes its duty and obligation to protect all extremely seriously. Both Churches have adopted the national Church of England’s robust procedures and guidelines in the protection of children and vulnerable adults.

Our Parochial Church Councils PCC make sure that the way our groups work with children and adults will keep them safe and will not place them at an unacceptable risk of harm. We do this through:

•establishing, implementing and following good safeguarding policies and procedures including safe recruitment;

•ensuring all staff and volunteers are aware of and follow the organisation’s safeguarding policies and procedures;

•ensuring that all staff and volunteers receive safeguarding training.

Our safeguarding officers are Mr Peter Dalton (St Helens, Sefton) and Mr Ray Glenn (St Oswalds, Netherton)
