Safeguarding Policy

Our Parish is committed to safeguarding children, young people and adults from harm. We follow the House of Bishops guidance and policies and have our own Parish Safeguarding Officer (PSO). Our Diocese’s safeguarding pages contain vital links and information including contacts for the Diocesan Safeguarding Advisor who advises our PSO. If you are concerned that a child or adult has been harmed or may be at risk of harm please contact the PSO Val Champion valchampion1052@outlook.com or the Diocesan Safeguarding Advisor Jem Carter jem.carter@salisbury.anglican.org. If you have immediate concerns about the safety of someone, please contact the police and your local authority’s children or adult social care services.

Sunday 30th June. 11.15 am Benefice Service (all four parishes) at St. Mary’s Church Cerne Abbas. Refreshments are served after all services. You are very welcome to join us! With the new heating system the church has a more welcoming atmosphere and seems therefore, easier to clean, and we are trying a new approach of a group clean every few months. In between the BIG CLEAN there is a fortnightly rota to ensure everything stays in order. We would welcome any new recruits, as ’Many hands make light work’. If like me you find housework irksome and a chore I can assure you that it’s much more rewarding and enjoyable to work in a group, taking just one area in which to concentrate one’s efforts. And as if a gleaming brass isn’t enough of a reward there’s a slice of Liz’ delicious sponge to accompany a well earned cuppa with a chat to round off the afternoon. Please join us....and thanks for reading this far!
