The parish of Barrow-in-Furness: St Francis with St Matthew is committed to the safeguarding of children, young people and adults.
Please visit our Safeguarding page on our official website (northbarrowchurches.org.uk/safeguarding)
We follow the House of Bishops guidance and policies and have our own Parish Safeguarding Officer(s), PSOs. The Diocese of Carlisle’s safeguarding pages contain vital links and information including contacts for the Diocesan Safeguarding Advisor (DSA) who advise our 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.
