We take the safeguarding of children and vulnerable adults very seriously at St Luke's. If at anytime, you see or hear anything that could suggest a safeguarding risk, please follow the procedure below.

We follow Diocesan policies, procedures and guidelines which are detailed in the manual, "A Safe Church".

A copy of our Safeguarding Policy is available just inside the Church.

Who will you talk to if you observe or are told about child or adult protection concerns?

Is the child or adult safe?

If in immediate danger, take emergency steps eg ambulance, police or adults' services.

Most situations are not emergencies - seek advice before action: contact the Parish Safeguarding Officers who will contact the Diocesan Safeguarding Team.
