At St. John the Baptist, Eltham, we are committed to keeping everyone safe within our church and during its activities. This means we take measures to protect the health, well-being and human rights of individuals which allow people, especially children, young people and vulnerable adults, to live free from abuse, harm and neglect.

It is our collective responsibility to take care of, look out for and help each other in church. If you have any safeguarding concerns yourself or about a member of the church community, you can speak to our safeguarding officers in confidence. You can also talk to them if you would like to know more about our safeguarding policy.
