Church of England Diocese of Ely Leverington

Safeguarding

The care and protection of children, young people and adults involved in church activities is the responsibility of everyone who participates in the life of the church.

The parish of Leverington: St Leonard 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, PSOs. The Diocese of Ely’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 someone is at risk, or is being abused, or presents a risk to others, please seek advice from a Safeguarding adviser. If you have immediate concerns about the safety of someone, please contact the police and your local authority Children or Adults Services.
