At Bishop Ridley, we take our safeguarding responsibilities seriously and are commited to ensuring that our church is a safe space for all. We follow the House of Bishops guidance and policies and have our own Parish Safeguarding Officer(s), PSOs. The Diocese of Rochester’s safeguarding pages contain vital links and information including contacts for the Diocesan Safeguarding Advisor (DSA) who advise our PSOs. 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 on 999 and your local authority Children or Adults Services.
