The Diocese of Newcastle is committed to safeguarding children, young people and adults and creating protective and supportive environments where all people, and especially those who may be vulnerable, are able to worship and pursue their faith journey in safety.
We follow the national legal and procedural framework for safeguarding children and adults, and Church of England policy and practice. Read updates on PCR2 here.

If you have a safeguarding concern about an adult or child, please contact our Safeguarding Adviser Carol Butler on 07825 167 016 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Alternatively, if you have any operational questions or require support regarding the Parish Safeguarding Dashboard, you can contact Donna Brown on 07436 220861, email email@example.com or contact the Safeguarding Team.
Regardless of circumstances, if you see or hear something which makes you think that a child, young person or adult may be being neglected or abused in any way, you should not hesitate to report your concerns. Do not attempt to investigate or resolve the situation locally.
