Protecting children, young people and vulnerable adults is the responsibility of us all, whether they are in the communities in which we live or part of our Christian family. If you have a concern about a child, young person or adult who may be at risk of harm please speak to one of the parish safeguarding coordinators or the priest within the parish.

Our Safeguarding coordinators are:

Lois Nicholl (St James, Barlborough)             Tel. 01246 570604

Roger Street (St John the Baptist, Clowne)    Tel. 01246 812087

Rector Rev’d Bryony Taylor                               Tel.  01246 813569

If you have concerns about a member of the clergy or an employee of the Diocese please contact the Diocesan Safeguarding Adviser, Julian Hodgson (07540 719447) or one of the Archdeacons. You can also report any concerns to the Police or Social Care. The important thing is that your concerns are shared with someone in a position to help.

Below is a flow chart explaining the process should you need to report a safeguarding concern.
