The PCC and members of St Andrew, Buckland Monachorum and Holy Spirit, Milton Combe recognise that they have a responsibility to support, protect and safeguard all, especially children, young people and vulnerable adults.

We are fully committed to providing a safer culture by acting within current legislation, national frameworks and the Diocesan Safeguarding procedures.

We will also, when necessary, work in partnership with the Diocesan Safeguarding Adviser, Social care, Police and other agencies to safeguard children and vulnerable adults.
