Child Protection

St. Thomas More Parish follows the Nottingham Diocese Child Protection Policy, shown below:

The Church recognises the personal dignity and rights of children towards whom it has a special responsibility and a duty of care. The Church, and individual members of it, undertake to do all in their power to create a safe environment for children and to prevent their physical, sexual or emotional abuse. The Church authorities will liaise closely with statutory agencies to ensure that any allegations of abuse are promptly and properly dealt with, victims supported and perpetrators held to account.”

If you have any concerns regarding any matters relating to Child Protection, please contact Ian Bridgwood (on 079 6286 7170) or Louise McCole, Protection Representatives, either in person or via the Presbytery.
