How do I report a safeguarding incident?

So you have used the 4Rs:

  • Recognise something is wrong
  • Respond appropriately
  • Record fact not opinion
  • Refer

But how does one refer a safeguarding incident?

You should be using the Model Parish Recording Template for your own safeguarding records. This is the same information that the safeguarding team will need to advise and support you.

The template should be emailed to and a member of the safeguarding team will be in touch.

If you would like an initial discussion please do not hesitate to contact us via telephone, via church house, or via
