Church of England Diocese of Rochester Chiddingstone

Safeguarding

As a parish, we are committed to Safeguarding Children, Young People and Vulnerable Adults. We follow the House of Bishops' guidance and policies and have our own Parish Safeguarding Officer, PSO (please see below).

The Diocese of Rochester’s safeguarding pages contain vital links and information including contacts for the Diocesan Safeguarding Advisor (DSA) who advise our PSO. If you are concerned that a child or adult has been harmed or may be at risk of harm please contact the DSA (contact details also below).

If you have immediate concerns about the safety of someone, please contact the police and your local authority Children or Adults Services.

Our Parish Safeguarding Officer is Carol Benton
