Site search

All parishes in The Church of England are now required to make their local safeguarding arrangements clearly accessible via the home page of their parish website by having an obvious link to further information, including contact details. 

For parishes using A Church Near You (ACNY) as their only parish website (which is possible now due to recent changes in functionality on ACNY) the safeguarding contact link appears automatically. 

Parishes with their own separate website however must also make sure contact information is clearly available on the homepage as soon as possible, if it isn't there already. This is required, even if a parish also has a presence on ACNY. 

For further guidance about this, alongside other parish obligations in relation to safeguarding, see the Parish Safeguarding Toolkit page here on the website
