Safeguarding Policy

The churches in our united benefice (St Mary's Church, Great Dunmow and St Andrew's Church, Barnston) are committed to Safeguarding Children, Young People, Victims/perpetrators of Domestic Abuse and Vulnerable Adults. Our Diocese has adopted the Church of England’s policies and best practice on safeguarding which may be found on the Church of England’s website:

We have adopted the House of Bishops’ Promoting a Safer Church Safeguarding Policy Statement and you can view our Parish Safeguarding Policy below.
