Children, young people and vulnerable adults

The Parish Church of St Philip’s, Tunbridge Wells, takes seriously its safeguarding responsibilities. We follow national guidelines in establishing a range of Safeguarding Policies and Forms. For more information on these national policies and safeguarding training please visit the Diocese of Rochester’s website by clicking here.

If you have concerns over the welfare of yourself or a member of the church then please contact our safeguarding officer:

  • Catherine Root, safeguarding officer – 07789 487593

If you are concerned about something you have experienced in a church, now or in the past, or you are worried about another person – perhaps a vulnerable adult or a child there are people you can talk to and you will be taken seriously.

You can contact the Diocese of Rochester’s Safeguarding team on 01634 560 000 or visit their webpage at:


Recognising that this may not feel safe for those with a lived experience of abuse from within the church, a dedicated telephone helpline, operated independently from the church, by the NSPCC, is available. Calls can be made free on 0800 80 20 20.


We want our life as a church to flow from the place of prayer and intimacy with God
