Safeguarding and Policy


Latimer Church is committed to all aspects of Safeguarding within our church, including the physical, emotional, and spiritual welfare and safety of all people, especially those who are vulnerable (Children, young people and vulnerable adults). We expect all our staff, volunteers and those who use our premises to share this commitment and value the support of the Latimer community in achieving this.

Together we are responsible for making Latimer a safe and welcoming place. In order to do this the links below guide you to relevant policies and the people responsible for implementing the processes and practices. We welcome your input face to face during events and our services, via our tear off slips on our services sheets and on feedback forms. In addition, feedback and concerns can also be shared via the various email links below which will begin a dialogue with the relevant person
