SAFEGUARDING REPORT

The parish of St Helen’s Low Fell is committed to the safeguarding of children, young people and adults. We follow the House of Bishops guidance and policies and have our own Parish Safeguarding Officer(s), PSOs. The Diocese of Durham's safeguarding page https://durhamdiocese.org/safeguarding-abuse-concerns/ contains vital links and information including contacts for the Diocesan Safeguarding Adviser (DSA), who advises PSOs. If you are concerned that a child or adult has been harmed or may be at risk of harm please contact the DSA. If you have immediate concerns about the safety of someone, please contact the police and your local authority Children or Adults Services.
