Protection of our children and young people is of paramount importance to us.

We have adopted the Safeguarding Policy that has been developed by the Church of England. If you have any concerns at all about the safety of children in our care, please contact our Safeguarding Officer, Tracey Williams on 07587 911258.

Our Safeguarding Policy is here.

Our parish of St Chad’s, Pattingham with Patshull is committed to safeguarding children, young people and adults from harm. We follow the House of Bishops guidance and policies and have our own Parish Safeguarding Officer (PSO). Our Diocese of Lichfield’s safeguarding pages contain vital links and information including contacts for the Diocesan Safeguarding Advisor who advises our PSO. If you are concerned that a child or adult has been harmed or may be at risk of harm please contact the PSO who is Tracey Williams and can be contacted on 07587 911258 or the Diocesan Safeguarding Advisor, Neil Spiring on 01543 306147. If you have immediate concerns about the safety of someone, please contact the police and your local authority’s children or adult social care services.
