Who to contact

by sfutch last modified 10 Aug, 2021 04:40 PM

Reporting a concern

If someone is at immediate risk of harm, please call 999 in an emergency.

All other safeguarding concerns within a parish should be brought to the attention of the Parish Safeguarding Officer (PSO), Church Safeguarding Officer (CSO in the Channel Islands) or parish priest in the first instance. They can then seek further guidance from one of the Diocesan Safeguarding Officers (DSO) and refer to statutory agencies if appropriate.

If your concern relates to the PSO, CSO or parish priest, please contact the DSO directly. There may be other occasions where someone may have a safeguarding concern but does not want to discuss this within a parish context. If this is the case, the DSO can be contacted directly.

Here is a flowchart showing what to do if you have a concern.

Please see below for the Diocesan Safeguarding Adviser’s hours. For non-emergency advice and support outside of their working hours, please contact thirtyone:eight on 0303 003111.
