Keeping Safe

Keeping Safe

The Parish of East Loveden Group

Most of the time at church we are like a big happy family. However, even in very happy families people can have a bad day and even people we know and trust can upset us. We want to help everyone have good days all of the time. We try to make sure that people who have jobs in the church always behave well and in a way that is helpful to you. We never want anyone or anything in church to frighten you, confuse you or worry you. It is <span style="font-size: 1rem;">important that you tell us if something is upsetting you or if you are feeling </span><span style="font-size: 1rem;">worried about something that’s happening or something somebody is doing. We have </span><span style="font-size: 1rem;">specially trained people who you can talk to and who you can ask for help. These people are good at safeguarding. This means they look after everyone’s safety. Caring for </span><span style="font-size: 1rem;">people is a very important part of our Christian life.</span>

The people who can help you are the parish priest or the parish safeguarding officer. You can contact the Parish Safeguarding Officer (Julia Nadarajah on 01400 230892 or the Parish Priest, Rev’d Georgie Machell - 01400 230722).  If you wish to speak to someone outside the church you can contact the diocesan safeguarding team – their contact details are 01522 50 40 81/07712 321 361 or [email protected]

There is also information there about other places from where you can get help or advice.
