Safeguarding is about protecting children, young people and vulnerable adults from abuse or neglect. We are all responsible for the safety of our children, young people and vulnerable adults.
The parish of St Margaret's is committed to the safeguarding of children, young people and adults. We follow the House of Bishops guidance and policies and we have our own Parish Safeguarding Officer(s), PSO(s) Ann-Marie Robinson.
The Diocese of Blackburn's safeguarding pages contain vital links and information including contact details for the Diocesan Safeguarding Team (DST) who advise our PSOs. If you are concerned a child or adult has been harmed, or may be at a risk of harm, please contact the DST. If you have immediate concerns about the safety of someone, please contact the police and your local authority Children or Adult Services.
"Serve wholeheartedly as if you were serving the Lord."
