Diocesan Safeguarding Adviser
Becca is the Diocesan Strategic Lead for all our safeguarding training and learning. With the national framework for learning pathways and creativity in having spotlight areas to raise awareness about, working with partner organisations and bringing her own professional experience, Becca works Weds-Friday each week.
Laura works with Becca as our safeguarding training administration and can answer your queries about how to log on to the national Church of England training portal for the online Basic and Foundation courses.
In addition Laura links directly with all our clergy, PTO clergy and Readers and automatically books them on to refresher training at the appropriate time to keep our records accurate and issues the completion certificates when training has been completed.
Reporting abuse and finding support
NSPCC helpline for Children and Adults: 0800 80 20 20
This is a special helpline that has been set up for the Past Case review 2 for those who have been affected either directly or indirectly by abuse in a church or cathedral setting. Calls will be handled sensitively and confidentially.
We understand reporting abuse may be very difficult and distressing to you and it may add to your hurt by our not being able to immediately assist you. Therefore here are the contact details of other agencies that are available to assist either on a 24-hour basis or through specialist helplines and services. Finding support contacts
The Safeguarding Team is available at all times to help support you and provide advice and guidance. Please see contact details above.
