We take the safeguarding and care of children and vulnerable adults very seriously in the Team Parish of Morden.
Here are the contact details for our Parish Safeguarding officers and Church and District Wardens.
Please note: as a “Team Parish” we have four churches, each with individual safeguarding officers and District Wardens. Activities at a specific church are covered by these officers. We also have a Safeguarding Officer and Parish Wardens for the whole parish, and these cover activities organised at the Parish Level.
