St John’s is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and adults, and expects all church members and visitors to share and promote this commitment.

All our regular youth leaders and volunteers undergo a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check in accordance with the Diocese of Birmingham guidelines.

The vicar and all licensed pastoral ministers are also DBS checked in accordance with Diocesan guidelines.

The Parish Children and Young People's Safeguarding Officer is Helen Greenwood (our Missioner).  Any concerns, however small, should be reported to her or to the vicar.  This can be done by completing the contact form here.  Please mark the enquiry "SAFEGUARDING". 

Details about the safeguarding procedures for vulnerable adults can be found here
