The Church of England is committed to the safeguarding, care and nurture of everyone within our church communities. 

St Peter and St Paul, Cudham and St Mary's, Downe seek to provide effective safeguarding training, support, advice and policies, so that children, young people and vulnerable adults are safe from abuse in the life of the Church and their wellbeing is enhanced. All of those who work with children, young people or vulnerable adults in our churches undertake a thorough checking process, culminating in a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check which is renewed every five years.

Denise Angell is our Safeguarding Officer and any concerns regarding a child or adult of a safeguarding nature please contact Denise on 07957 206901.
