In 2017, the Parish adopted the Church's national policy for safeguarding Children, Young People and Vulnerable Adults, "Promoting a Safer Church", displaying it here and in the churches. This replaced the parish's previous, separate, policies for these groups. In 2019, the Parish adopted the parish policy recommended by the national church.
