Getting help

If you are a child

and you need to talk to someone about things that are happening to you, that you don’t like, you can contact Childline, or telephone Childline on 0800 1111

If you are an adult

and you need to access support about something that is happening to you, you can find details of various support organisations on the I have been abused page of the Diocesan Safeguarding website (click down to find links to various support organisations for you to contact).

If you need to contact the Diocesan Safeguarding Team, their details are on the Contact the Team page of the Diocesan Safeguarding website.

If you need to report a safeguarding concern

to the statutory authorities in Sussex, you can find out what to do on the What to do if page of the Diocesan Safeguarding website.  (Click on the option on the left that most describes the situation you are concerned about, and follow the advice and further links you find there.)
