Safeguarding

The Diocese of Bristol aims to create communities of wholeness with Christ at the centre. Our church communities need to be places where all are safe and protected from abuse, all can be healed and all can live life to the full.

At St Michael’s we are committed to enabling that aim, and  we seek to provide effective safeguarding processes  to ensure the safety of young people and vulnerable adults  All of those who work with children, young people or vulnerable adults at St Michael’s  undertake a checking process, culminating in a Disclosure & Barring Service (DBS) Check, which is renewed every five years.

Our Parish Safeguarding Officer for St Michael’s is Suzy Elgood

She is the first point of call for any safeguarding concerns and queries. Contact her via the Church Office
