Church of England Diocese of Lincoln Fotherby

SAFEGUARDING

Safeguarding : We wish 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 important that you tell us if something is upsetting you or if you are feeling worried about something that’s happening or something somebody is doing. We have 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 people is a very important part of our Christian life.

The person who can help you is the parish safeguarding officer, Dr.Jenny Ballantyne, tel 07768060012 or you can contact the Rural Dean, Rev'd Nick Brown, 01507 603123. If you wish to speak to someone outside of your church you can contact the diocesan safeguarding team – their contact details are www.lincoln.anglican.org/Pages/Category/safeguarding .There is also information there about other places from where you can get help or advice.
