At STN we believe that every human being is made in the image of God and that we should honour everyone regardless of their age, capabilities, gender or ethnicity. We are committed to safeguarding children, young people and adults at risk so that they are able to worship and grow in Christ safely.
We aim to do this in a coordinated and supported manner, promoting a safer church and following the advice and guidelines issued by the Diocese of Norwich.
Concerns about children, young people and adults at risk will be diligently and promptly responded to according to these procedures, recognising the sensitivity it may hold for those involved.
Ian Dyble has oversight of Children and young people’s safeguarding practice and Caroline Johnson has oversight of safeguarding for vulnerable adults. .
If you have a safeguarding concern, you can get in touch with the safeguarding team by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 01603 624390.
If you would like to speak to a professional safeguarding advisor, please contact the Cathedral’s safeguarding officer, Sian Griffiths, on 07342 999386 or email@example.com. In the event of an emergency contact 999.
