Our parish of Hedge End: St John the Evangelist is committed to safeguarding children, young people and adults from harm. We follow the House of Bishops guidance and policies and have our own Parish Safeguarding Officer (PSO). Our Diocese of Winchester’s safeguarding pages contain vital links and information including contacts for the Diocesan Safeguarding Advisor who advises our PSO. If you are concerned that a child or adult has been harmed or may be at risk of harm please contact the PSO, Catherine Lynch who is available to contact on 01489 331727 or via email using [email protected], or the Diocesan Safeguarding Advisor, Jackie Rowlands who can be contacted on 01962 737317 or 07921 865374 or by email using [email protected]. If you have immediate concerns about the safety of someone, please contact the police and your local authority’s children or adult social care services.
