Safeguarding

The parish of All Hallows by the Tower believes that safeguarding is the responsibility of everyone and is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all those who are vulnerable (children, young people and vulnerable adults). We expect all of our staff, volunteers and those who use our premises to share this commitment and value the support of those who worship here in achieving this.

A hard copy of our safeguarding policy and the Parish Safeguarding Handbook are available in the church office, so please speak to a member of staff or one of the welcome team members if you would like to look at these documents.
