Safeguarding

 

The Hartford Hundred Group is committed to the safeguarding of children, young people and adults. We follow the House of Bishops guidance and policies and have our own Parish Safeguarding Officer (PSO). The Diocese of St. Albans’s safeguarding pages contain vital links and information including contacts for the Diocesan Safeguarding Advisor (DSA) who advise our PSOs. If you are concerned that a child or adult has been harmed or may be at risk of harm, please contact the DSA. If you have immediate concerns about the safety of someone, please contact the police and your local authority Children or Adults Services."

Although safeguarding is the responsibility of everyone here at The Hartford Hundred Group of Parishes; Ian Screech is our designated Safeguarding Lead and can be contacted about any safeguarding matter on 01707 269738. You can also speak to our Rector Revd Theresa Musiwacho, on 01707 875940 or leave an email via hartfordhundred@outlook.com
