Safeguarding

The Parish of Usworth is committed to the safeguarding of children, young people and adults. We follow the House of Bishops guidance and policies and have our own Safeguarding Officer. 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 please contact the DSA. If you have immediate concerns about the safety of someone, please  contact the police  and your local authority Children or Adult Services.
