Safeguarding is Everyone’s Responsibility – together we can build a safer church

What to do if….

 

What to do if you have concerns about possible abuse (including allegations)

In an emergency, call emergency services 999

 

Otherwise, consult the person to whom you are responsible

 

Decide together whether to seek advice or to make an immediate referral to police or care services

 

Always contact the Diocesan Safeguarding Adviser Hilary Higton on 07495 060869

 

Keep a record of what happened, your concerns and your actions
