Safeguarding Duty Phone: 01353 652747

(Please do not use this number for queries about DBS checks, training or recruitment issues)

The role of the duty phone is to support the referrer/parish in their decision making. The referrer will receive professional guidance and together, with the Duty Diocesan Safeguarding Adviser, agree the next steps by formulating a plan that reflects an assessment of the immediate safeguarding risks. As emails are not monitored outside of core hours, please do not email referrals until you have rung the Duty phone and spoken to the Duty Diocesan Safeguarding Adviser.
