Safeguarding at Immaculate Conception, Stroud

See the Safeguarding page on the Clifton Diocese website:

The parish of Immaculate Conception recognises and follows the CSAS (Catholic Safeguarding Advisory Service) policies and procedures.

The parish is committed to the Safeguarding policies of the Catholic Church in England and Wales, to take all reasonable steps to protect children, young people and vulnerable adults from any form of abuse or maltreatment and to promote a safe environment for them. 


This commitment flows from the fact that we are all made in the image of God and the Church's common belief in the dignity and uniqueness of every human life.


We start from the principle that each person has a right to expect the highest level of care and protection, love, encouragement and respect that we can give.


We will liaise closely and openly with statutory agencies to ensure that any concerns or allegations of abuse that are raised are promptly reported and properly responded to, victims supported and perpetrators held to account.



If you are concerned about a safeguarding issue please contact one or more of the following immediately:

Local Safeguarding Representative (Caroline Rush):
