Reporting abuse


If you are concerned about the welfare of a child or adult at risk, do not delay in contacting the police, using 999 if a child or adult is believed to be in immediate danger.

If you are a member of the public, please refer allegations directly to the police and also to Mick Thurley | Safeguarding Coordinator, Roman Catholic Diocese of East Anglia | Tel: 0208 505 4199 | Mob: 07429 215344|Email: safeguarding.coordinator@rcdea.org.uk
