Safeguarding is an essential part of all aspects of everyday life. As the Riversmeet Benefice, we take safeguarding very seriously in our churches and all activities that happen under the banner of the Benefice. As part of the Diocese of St Albans and the wider Church of England, we endeavour to implement all safeguarding policies in accordance with current guidelines. You will find in this section of our website details of our diocesan contacts and who you should contact if you have any concerns. There are also links on this website to a wider group of contacts for your information.
