Reporting safeguarding concerns
Everyone has their part to play in helping to safeguard children and adults at risk within the life of the church.
Please speak to the Designated Person for Safeguarding (DPS) at your church if:
• the behaviour of a child or adult at risk gives cause for concern
• an allegation is made in any context about a child or adult at risk being harmed
• the behaviour of any individual towards children or adults at risk causes concern
In an emergency where you believe that a child or adult at risk is at immediate risk of harm, contact the police and then inform your DPS as soon as possible.
