We take the safeguarding of children and vulnerable adults very seriously to ensure that they are safe whilst in our care.

The PCC has adopted The House of Bishops’ Safeguarding Policy
‘Promoting a Safer Church’ and the Diocesan Safeguarding policy.

All those working with children, young people and vulnerable adults have had appropriate checks and training.

If you have any concerns about the welfare of anyone connected with the church, please contact the Priest-in-Charge, Revd Canon Geoffrey Bennett on rev.bennett@talk21.com or our Safeguarding Officer, Russell Bennett on safeguarding.allsaintsfalmouth@gmail.com.

The Diocesan Safeguarding Officer, Andy Earl, can be contacted on 01872 274351 or safeguardingconcerns@truro.anglican.org. Out of hours, please phone 01208 251300 for an urgent response from Social Care.

If you believe someone is in immediate danger of harm, you should call 999 straight away and ask for the police.

If necessary, please call without delay the Local Authority Social Care Services:

  • Local Authority Children’s Social Care: 0300 123 1116
  • Local Authority Adult’s Social Care: 0300 1234 131.

We hold full policies for both safeguarding and GDPR for those wishing to see them.
