Benefice Who’s Who

Safeguarding – When you need help or someone to speak to.

The care and protection of children, young people and adults involved in Church activities is the responsibility of everyone who participates in the life of the Church.

We understand that talking to someone about abuse can be difficult and distressing, but our Child Protection Officers and Vulnerable Adult Protection Officers are here to help you.

If you are concerned that someone you know is at risk of, or is being abused, or presents a risk to others, please seek advice from our Safeguarding Officers or if necessary Adult Social Services (0344 8008020), Children’s Advice and Duty Service (CADS) (0344 8008020) or the Police (101). In an emergency, always call 999.
