Safeguarding

The parish of All Hallows by the Tower believes that safeguarding is the responsibility of everyone and is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all those who are vulnerable (children, young people and vulnerable adults). We expect all of our staff, volunteers and those who use our premises to share this commitment and value the support of those who worship here in achieving this.

Jane Walker is our Safeguarding Officer, and she is the first person to contact if you have any concerns around the welfare of a child or adult at risk. Jemma Lawley is our Children’s Champion, and she is an advocate for all children in areas of parish life, making sure their views are heard and their needs are thought of. They can both be contacted via the church office. 

Annette Gordon is the Diocesan Safeguarding Adviser, and anyone wanting to report an issue, either current or historic, can contact her if they don’t feel able to approach the parish directly. The Safeguarding Helpline number is 020 7932 1224 and the email address is safeguarding@london.anglican.org 

Out of hours advice can be sought from the CCPAS’s helpline on 0303 003 1111 where you will be able to get confidential advice, guidance and support.
