Safeguarding at St Mary's
If you or someone you know is in immediate danger, dial 999.
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 assistance 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.
