The Parish of Ventnor & Bonchurch is committed to safeguarding children, young people and adults and creating protective and supportive environments where all people, and especially those who may be vulnerable, are able to worship and pursue their faith journey in safety.

We follow the national legal and procedural framework for safeguarding children and adults, and Church of England policy and practice. At our Annual Parochial Church Meeting on April 3rd 2019 it was unanimously agreed to follow the Diocese of Portsmouth’s Safeguarding Policy..

If you have a safeguarding concern about an adult or child, please contact:

Rev’d Canon Hugh Wright – Tele. 01983 853729.
