Safeguarding

The Parochial Church Council (PCC) has formally adopted the House of Bishops’ ‘Promoting a Safer Church; Safeguarding Policy Statement’ which you can view here (link to follow): https://www.churchofengland.org/sites/default/files/2017-11/cofe-policy-statement.pdf

If you believe a child or adult is in immediate danger of significant or serious harm you should contact the emergency services on 999.

Other safeguarding concerns or reports of alleged or suspected abuse should be reported promptly to the Parish Safeguarding Officer who will then report them to the Diocesan Safeguarding Advisers.

The Parish Safeguarding Officer is Julia Peart who can be contacted via the Parish Office on 01263 713479.

You can also report a concern directly to the Diocesan Safeguarding Office.

Their contact details are available from the Diocese of Norwich website at https://www.dioceseofnorwich.org/training/safeguarding.
