Safeguarding


If you have information about a safeguarding situation where a child or adult is in immediate danger, or requires immediate medical attention, call the emergency services on 999. Do not delay.

For all other safeguarding enquiries, browse this section for details of the Diocese of Ely safeguarding team, training and best practice guides.

The safeguarding team is committed to helping you create protective and supportive environments where all people, and especially those who may be vulnerable, are able to worship and pursue their faith journey in safety.

We follow the national legal and procedural framework for safeguarding children and adults, and Church of England policy and practice.
