"The parish of Laisterdyke & Tong: St James is committed to the safeguarding of children, young people and adults. We follow the House of Bishops guidance and policies and have our own Parish Safeguarding Officer(s), PSOs. The Diocese of Leeds’s safeguarding pages contain vital links and information including contacts for the Diocesan Safeguarding Advisor (DSA) who advise our PSOs. If you are concerned that a child or adult has been harmed or may be at risk of harm please contact the DSA. If you have immediate concerns about the safety of someone, please contact the police and your local authority Children or Adults Services."


Ensuring that children and vulnerable adults are kept safe and able to participate fully and safely is vital.  We operate a robust safeguarding policy which you can download and review.  If you have any questions about this, please do get in touch.
