Safeguarding at St Paul's
Our parish of St Paul's in Grove Park, Chiswick is committed to safeguarding children, young people and adults from harm. We follow the House of Bishops guidance and policies and have our own Parish Safeguarding Officer (PSO). The Diocese of London’s safeguarding pages contain links and information including contacts for the Diocesan Safeguarding Advisor who advises our PSO.
If you are concerned that a child or adult has been harmed or may be at risk of harm please contact Shelagh Allsop 07710 385839 who is the St Paul's PSO.
If you have immediate concerns about the safety of someone, please contact the police and your local authority’s children or adult social care services.
In general terms, if you are worried about something, it can help a great deal to talk about it, either here at church or there are some phone lines listed below that you can call free of charge.
