The parish of Hull, Newland, St John is committed to the safeguarding of children, young people and adults.

We follow the guidance and policies of the Church of England's House of Bishops, and have our own Parish Safeguarding Representative (PSR), Ian Merryweather.

The Diocese of York’s safeguarding pages contain vital links and information including contacts for the Diocesan Safeguarding Advisor (DSA) who advises us.

If you are concerned that a child or adult has been harmed or may be at risk of harm please contact Ian via 'get in touch', or contact the Diocesan Safeguarding Adviser (DSA).

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