If you have a concern you should speak up as soon as possible. You need to be as specific as you can about your concerns, the bad practice you have observed or behaviour you have seen. The more detail you can give the better – this will include as many facts, dates, times and history. We will not be able to rely on rumour or opinion.
You will need to put your concerns to the Diocesan Safeguarding Adviser
in the first instance. You can raise concerns anonymously. As a whistle blower, you will not be expected to prove the truth of your concern. The action we can take as an organisation will depend on how far we can assert the credibility of the concern.
