St Anne in the Grove, Southowram, 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, PSO. Our PSO is Ian Knowles, contactable on firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Diocese of Leeds safeguarding pages contain vital links and information, including contacts for the Diocesan Safeguarding Advisor (DSA) who advise our PSO. There are also links to the 'Safer Church' guidance for churches and safeguarding polices. These can be found here.
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 Adult Services.
