The Diocesan Safeguarding Team (DST), with each Area Bishop’s office and the Senior Staff, will ensure the overall management of safeguarding across the Diocese, drawing in specialist support as needed.
Any concerns in the Diocese should be brought to the attention of the Church Safeguarding Officer (parishes) who can seek advice from the Safeguarding Team. Other areas of the Diocese (e.g. chaplaincies) should contact the DST direct. Out of hours advice can be sought from the CCPAS’s helpline on 0303 003 1111. You will be able to get confidential advice, guidance and support.
Our Safeguarding Helpline number is 020 7932 1224 and the team email address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
See our safeguarding support pages for more information about safeguarding policies, responsibilities, training and advice.
