Digswell Parish is proud to be a part of the Church of England Diocese of St. Albans whose bishops, clergy and lay leaders are fully committed to safeguarding as an integral part of the life and ministry of the Church.

Safeguarding means the action the Church takes to promote a safer culture. We promote the welfare of children, young people and adults, work to prevent abuse from occurring, seek to protect those that are at risk of being abused and respond well to those that have been abused. We will take care to identify where a person may present a risk to others and offer support whilst taking steps to mitigate such risks.

The Church of England affirms the ‘Whole Church’ approach to safeguarding. This approach encompasses a commitment to consistent policy and practice across all church bodies, church officers and that everyone associated with the church, who comes into contact with children, young people and adults, has a role to play.

The Church will take appropriate steps to maintain a safer environment for all and to practice fully and positively Christ’s ministry towards children, young people and adults; to respond sensitively and compassionately to their needs in order to help keep them safe from harm.

Safeguarding is the responsibility of everyone here in the Parish of Digswell. Pamela Turner is our designated Safeguarding Lead and can be contacted about any safeguarding matter on 07763 764447. You can also speak to our Parish Priest, Fr Rob Marshall, on 07775 882011 or email
