Safeguarding at St Mary's
If you or someone you know is in immediate danger, dial 999.
If you are at the church and need to identify your location to a call-handler, the postcode is BN2 1PR.
At St Mary’s, we seek to provide a safe and welcoming environment for everyone. We take special care of children and of adults who need support to manage their lives. Volunteers and staff for some roles involving children and vulnerable adults will be asked for DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) checks.
