St Jude’s takes its safeguarding responsibilities very seriously and expects correct procedures to be followed at all times. We have adopted in full all the relevant policies issued by Peterborough Diocese. These apply to every area of activity of the Church and its members. We expect anyone involved with either children or vulnerable adults to be familiar with these documents.
