The parish of Roade St Mary's is committed to the safeguarding of children, young people and adults.  We follow the House of Bishops guidance and policies and have our own Parish Safeguarding Officer(s), PSOs.

The Diocese of Peterborough’s safeguarding pages contain vital links and information including contacts for the Diocesan Safeguarding Advisor (DSA) who advise our PSOs. 

Safeguarding is about caring for one another and looking out for one another – and each of us has a crucial role to play in that. Our church can be safer if we all work together.
