St Martin's Church is committed to:

  • The care, nurture of, and respectful pastoral ministry with, all children, young people and adults.
  • The safeguarding and protection of all children, young people and adults.
  • Being a safe and caring community which provides a loving environment where victims of abuse can report or disclose abuse and where they can find support and best practice that contributes to the prevention of abuse.

This commitment is shared by all our staff and volunteers.
