At Holy Saviour, we take our safeguarding responsibilities very seriously.

If you are concerned that a child or an adult has been harmed or is at risk of harm, please contact Margaret Bewick, the Parish Safeguarding Officer, on 0191 267 1443 / 07790 234046 or by email. If the Parish Safeguarding Officer is not available, please contact the Vicar (0191 267 4633 or email) or the Churchwardens (Edith Collins: 07837 144548; Sue Rawlinson: 0191 413 9411). The Diocese of Newcastle's Safeguarding Officer (Ruth Rogan: 07825 167016) is also available for advice and support.

Below is the policy adopted by the Parochial Church Council in July 2016.
