Responding to safeguarding concerns or allegations

If there is an immediate danger to a child or vulnerable adult, call 999.

Most situations are not emergencies and you should follow these 3 steps:

1. Observe or listen carefully

2. Write it down

3. Pass it on to Parish Safeguarding Officer or Vicar (and no-one else)

Should you have any specific concerns or questions please contact us or the Safeguarding team at Southwark Diocese.
