Website Image Safeguarding


At St Mary le Strand we are committed to ensuring that our church is a safe place for everyone. We take the safeguarding and care of children, young people and vulnerable adults very seriously.

We believe that every person has a value and dignity which comes directly from the creation of male and female in God’s own image and likeness. Christians see this potential as fulfilled by God’s re-creation of us in Christ. This implies a duty to value all people as bearing the image of God and therefore to protect them from harm.

The Safeguarding Policy for the parish of St Mary le Strand with St Clement Danes can be found here.
