The Safeguarding Team are here to help you

The Safeguarding Team operates a triage system and a duty team member will deal with all enquiries and issues that arise on a daily rotational basis. Queries will either be answered directly or diverted to the appropriate person.

As your first point of contact for reporting issues or making enquiries, please contact the Diocesan Safeguarding Team on:

Office number: 0113 353 0257

DSAs remain available between 09.00 and 17.00, Monday to Friday. Advice on what action to take outside these hours can be found in the important information section above. 

Please note: Gail O’Neill, DBS and Safeguarding Administrator, remains responsible for DBS checks and the organisation of training courses. If you have a safeguarding enquiry that does not require the assistance of a Safeguarding Adviser (e.g. DBS. or training) please contact Gail directly at or 0113 3530204.
