What to do if you are upset or concerned
Most of the time at church we are a happy family. However, even in a happy family people can have a bad day and people we know and trust can upset us. We want to help everyone have good days all of the time. We try to make sure that people who have jobs in the church always behave well and in a way that is helpful to you. We never want anyone or anything in church to frighten you, confuse you or worry you. It is important that you tell us if something is upsetting you or if you are feeling worried about something that’s happening or something somebody is doing. We have specially trained people who you can talk to and who you can ask for help. These people are good at safeguarding. This means they look after everyone’s safety. Caring for people is a very important part of our Christian life.
The people who can help you at St Andrews are:
Vicar: Revd. Julie Donn firstname.lastname@example.org
Parish Safeguarding Officer: Sarah Glossop email@example.com
If you wish to speak to someone who isn’t a member of our church you can contact the diocesan safeguarding team – their contact details are available HERE. You will also find information about other organizations which offer help and advice.
