The Diocesan Safeguarding Team must also be informed straight away of any safeguarding concerns involving a church officer. A church officer is anyone appointed/elected by, or on behalf of, the Church to a post or role whether they are ordained or lay, paid or unpaid. Joanna is also happy to answer questions, and provide advice, relating to safeguarding policies and procedures.
