Safeguarding

The protection of young and vulnerable people in and around the church is our top priority. Each of our leaders, Sunday school teachers and youth workers has been trained in safeguarding by the Diocese in Europe and vetted by the police. If you have any questions or concerns about this, our safeguarding officer, Sophie Manson can be contacted by e-mail at this address: safeguard.saintmarksversailles@gmail.com
