All the churches of the Lark Valley and North Bury Team Ministry are committed to the safeguarding of children, young people and adults.


We follow the House of Bishops guidance and policies and have our own Parish Safeguarding Officers, PSOs. 

Details of whom can be found following the Safeguarding contact details link below.


The Diocese of St.Edmundsbury & Ipswich’s safeguarding pages contain vital links and information including contacts for the Diocesan Safeguarding Advisor (DSA) who advises our PSOs.

If you are concerned that a child or adult has been harmed or may be at risk of harm please contact the DSA.

If you have immediate concerns about the safety of someone, please contact the police and your local authority Children or Adults Services.
