The Parish of Petersham takes the safeguarding and care of children and vulnerable adults very seriously.


We have adopted the House of Bishops' Promoting a Safer Church Policy Statement and the Policies of Southwark Diocese on Safeguarding and Domestic Abuse.  


You may contact our Parish Safeguarding Officer Fiona Sandford at pso.stpeterspetersham@gmail.com, or the Churchwardens can be contacted through the parish office at st.peters.petersham@googlemail.com
