Safeguarding

Holy Trinity is committed to the safeguarding of children and vulnerable adults and all those who attend Church activities.  Holy Trinity abides by the policies and procedures set out in the Southwark Diocesan safeguarding manual.

Holy Trinity has, at present, an interim safeguarding officer as we are in the process of recruiting for a new permanent person to become our Safeguarding Officer.  The current contact is:
