Reporting abuse


If you have information about a safeguarding situation where a child or adult is in immediate danger or requires immediate medical attention call the emergency services on 999. Do not delay.

The National Safeguarding Team, NST, is working to increase the capacity and expertise of parishes, dioceses and other Church of England institutions to respond to safeguarding concerns and support victims and survivors. We are not able to offer either an emergency or 24-hour response but there are Safeguarding Advisors in every diocese and Safeguarding Officers in every parish.


If you wish to report any safeguarding concerns directly to the Safeguarding Officer please make contact using the form below. We will ensure that any concerns are referred to the relevant authority and/or statutory agency, as appropriate.
