Diocese of Portsmouth

Reporting a Concern

If you have a concern about a child, young person or adult who may be at risk of harm, you should speak to your Parish Safeguarding Officer or Incumbent as soon as possible.

If you have concerns about a member of the clergy or an employee of the Diocese please contact the Diocesan Safeguarding Adviser, Ian Berry on the number below.  

Please note that if there is a concern in a parish that is served by a Provincial Episcopal Visitor (ie. Bishop Norman Banks), the responsibility for safeguarding concerns still rests with our diocesan bishop, Bishop Christopher, and his team. Enquiries should still be directed towards our diocesan safeguarding adviser, Ian Berry, whose details are below.

In an emergency always dial 999
