S. Chad's is committed to the safeguarding of children, young people and adults. We follow the Church of England House of Bishops' guidance and policies, and we have our own Parish Safeguarding Officer (PSO). The Diocese of Leeds’s safeguarding pages contain vital links and information, including contacts for the Diocesan Safeguarding Advisors (DSAs), 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. If you have immediate concerns about the safety of someone, please contact the Police and your local authority Children's or Adults' Services.
