Who will you talk to if you observe or are told about child or adult protection concerns?
Immediately: is the child or adult safe? If in immediate danger, take emergency steps e.g. ambulance, police or children’s or adult’s services.
Most situations are not emergencies – seek advice before action: contact the parish safeguarding officers who will contact the Diocesan safeguarding team.
