Church of England Diocese of Leicester Lockington cum Hemington

1. Safeguarding

The parish of Lockington-cum-Hemington: the St Nicholas' Church is committed to the safeguarding of children, young people and adults. We follow the House of Bishops guidance and policies and have our own Parish Safeguarding Officer(s), PSOs. The Diocese of Leicester’s safeguarding pages contain vital links and information including contacts for the Diocesan Safeguarding Advisor (DSA) who advise our PSOs. If you are concerned that a child or adult has been harmed or may be at risk of harm please contact the DSA. If you have immediate concerns about the safety of someone, please contact the police and your local authority Children or Adults Services.

If you have a safeguarding concern, then please contact the Safeguarding Co-ordinators, Sandy Scaife or Hazel Norwell on 07783 089262, or the Vicar, The Rev'd Andrew Race on 01332 810364. If you wish to speak to the Diocesan Safeguarding Team, or to someone outside the church, their contact details are available here.
