Safeguarding everyone in our community is key to all we do within this Benefice.  Our Policy Statement on Safeguarding was adopted by Richmond with Hudswell Parochial Church Council meeting on 17th Jul 2024. 

Each person who works within this church agrees to abide by these recommendations and the guidelines established by the church.  This church appoints Jan Beeton 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.

You can read the Promoting Safer Church Promoting Safer Church booklet here.
