Our aim at Our Lady of Lourdes and St Michael Parish is making safeguarding more visible and understood by as many people as possible to help us all achieve our goal of keeping everybody safe and protected.
In order to facilitate this we have a Parish Safeguarding Representative (PSR). Her name is Angela Atkins.
If you have any questions about Safeguarding or are concerned about a child or adult at risk then please contact Angela Atkins on 01895 233193 or 0771 480 7562 or email firstname.lastname@example.org or the Safeguarding Team below.
If you believe a child or adult at risk is in immediate danger then please contact the emergency services on 999.
