Our Policy Statement on Safeguarding was adopted by Richmond with Hudswell Parochial Church Council meeting on 16th September 2020.  

Each person who works within this church agrees to abide by these recommendations and the guidelines established by the church.  This church appoints Jan Jack as the Parish Safeguarding Officer.  

The application of this policy will be reviewed each year and a report provided by the Parish Safeguarding Officer to the PCC.
