postheadericon Safe Church Statement

St Alban’s Wickersley


  As members of the Church of England we are concerned with the wholeness of each individual within God’s purpose for everyone. We seek to safeguard all members of the church community, of all ages.  It is the responsibility of each one of us to protect people from physical, emotional, sexual, financial, institutional and spiritual abuse, and from neglect, grooming, traffiking and modern slavery.
