If you are concerned that someone you know is at risk of, or is being abused, or presents a risk to others, please seek advice from the Parish Safeguarding Officer, the Diocesan Safeguarding Advisor or if necessary report the matter to the Local Authority or if immediate risk or danger to the Police.
