The parishes of All Saints and St Barnabas take the safeguarding and care of children and vulnerable adults very seriously.  

Both our churches abide by the Southwark Diocese Safeguarding policy. For more information please click here

Our PCC members all undertake DBS checks and undergo regular training in safeguarding, including awareness of domestic abuse and awareness of Modern Slavery. Our churches have also committed to the Clewer Initiative, part of the Church of England which works to combat Modern Slavery around the world, but particularly in the UK.

Our Safeguarding officers can be reached directly by email:

All Saints, Kenley (Peter)

St Barnabas, Purley (Linda)

If you have ANY church related concerns please do not hesitate to contact Justine or our Safeguarding Officers.  if you believe that someone is at immediate risk, please do not hesitate - call 999 at once.
