St Alban North Harrow


At St Alban's we take the safety of all our community very seriously. 

Our Safeguarding Officer, Cathy Tahsin works with the PCC to ensure that we have robust safeguarding policies and procedures in place: please click here to see our PCC policy document.

St Albans has appointed Cathy Tahsin as our Safeguarding Officer. She is ably assisted by our  Deputy Safeguarding Officer and our Children's Champion Carys Grom. 
Our Safeguarding Officer is the first person to contact if you have any concerns around the welfare of a child or vulnerable adult. 

All our safeguarding information and practices are set out in the Parish Safeguarding Handbook. All our volunteers and employees follow the Code of Safer Working Practice. You can download this presentation about our Safeguarding policies made at the Annual meeting in 2023.
