Towards a ‘Safer’ Church

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


Tell your Parish Priest Allison Davies or Safeguarding Officer Anne Choi on 01386 750203


Only tell others who need to know
