St Andrew's Church, takes seriously its safeguarding responsibilities. We follow national guidelines in establishing a range of Safeguarding Policies and Forms.


Worried about a child

If you are worried about a child or young person (under 18 years) and the information you have suggests that a child is at immediate risk of being harmed, you should tell the police without delay. This is an emergency and it is appropriate therefore to use the police emergency number 999.


If you are worried about a child but do not think that there is a risk of immediate harm, you should still speak to someone who can help as soon as possible. Whilst you can contact a member of the Diocesan Safeguarding Team for advice on:01634 560000, we are not an emergency service or a replacement for the Local Authority Children's Service teams, and you should approach your local Children's Services.


Contact details:

Telephone: Daytime hours (Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm) 020 3045 5440.
Out of hours (5pm to 9am Monday to Friday and 24 hour cover at weekends) 020 8303 7777 or 020 8303 7171.

Worried about an adult 

If you see, hear or suspect that an adult may be at risk of abuse or neglect, you must tell someone about it. If there is an immediate danger contact the Police on 999.

Alternately, you can contact the London Borough of Bexley on 0208 303 7777 or email
The Contact Centre based at the Bexley Civic Offices is open to take calls between 8.00am and 5.00pm Monday to Friday. Outside these hours and on Sundays and Bank Holidays, in emergency only, please contact our Out of Hours Duty Service on 0208 303 7777.
