Welcome to Safeguarding

Bishop Alan

The Rt Revd Dr Alan Smith
Bishop of St Albans

We are committed to offering a warm and safe welcome to everyone who attends our churches, especially to children and vulnerable adults.

This is integral to our vision to be a place where people discover and deepen their sense of God’s love for them and are drawn to join in prayer, worship and the life of the church.

The Diocese of St Albans has adopted the national policies and Practice Guidance for Safeguarding within the Church of England and commended them to the deaneries and parishes for adoption and implementation.

Safeguarding is not just a matter of words. We put survivors first, strive to care for those who have been harmed and live up to best practice. We work with statutory and other authorities to deal effectively with harm and learn lessons which will make our church and our world a safer place for all.
