At St. Anne's we believe that all people should be valued, supported and protected from harm, and that the Church has a special responsibility towards vulnerable people.

We take safeguarding extremely seriously. This is done through carefully planned activities for children, young people and adults, care for those hurt by abuse and ministering to, and robustly managing, those who have caused harm.

Our parish safeguarding contacts are Terry Graham and Jenny Baxter.

Reporting abuse

If you are concerned about the welfare of a child or adult at risk, do not delay in contacting the police, using 999 if a child or adult is believed to be in immediate danger.

It is the policy of the Catholic Church in England and Wales to report all allegations of abuse to statutory authorities, regardless of whether the abuse occurred recently or in the past, or whether the accused person is living or deceased.

If you are in any role within the Catholic Church in England and Wales, you must refer allegations directly to the safeguarding office for your diocese or religious congregation, or directly to the Police.

If you are a member of the public, please refer allegations directly to the police and also to the
safeguarding office in our diocese;
Telephone: 0151 522 1043 or 0151 522 1103.
