The parish of Newdigate is committed to the safeguarding of 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 Guildford’s safeguarding pages contain vital links and information including contacts for the Diocesan Safeguarding Advisor (DSA) 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 the PSO or Guildford Diocese Safeguarding Single Point of Access. If you have immediate concerns about the safety of someone, please contact the police and your local authority’s children or adults social care services.
