Jesus had strong words for those who misused and mistreated children. The PCC of All Saints' affirms the principles of the House of Bishops’ Policy for Safeguarding (contained in Promoting a Safer Church) and is committed to the nurturing, protection and safekeeping of children, young people and all vulnerable people in its care.

The NSPCC has created a new webpage with information and advice for parents or carers who are worried a child or young person may be struggling with their mental health or has anxiety about coronavirus. The webpage includes information on: talking about feelings and worries; keeping in touch and balancing screen time; ways to create structure and routine; and helping to give children a sense of control. Read the information and advice: Talking to a child worried about coronavirus (COVID-19).
