The St Martin’s Guild is committed to ensuring that our procedures comply with the safeguarding guidelines issued by the Central Council of Church Bell Ringers (CCCBR), the Dioceses, and legal requirements.

The Guild appoints a Safeguarding Officer annually who also provides guidance and assistance to SMG members regarding Safeguarding issues if able to do so. If not, they will refer SMG members in need of assistance to the appropriate sources of guidance.
