Diocese of Ely Safeguarding Policies

The links below direct you to a number of Diocese of Ely Safeguarding Policies.

Authorised Listening Service

If you are a survivor or victim of abuse that happened in a Church setting, whether it happened recently or many years ago, and you would like to talk to someone about what happened, then please contact the safeguarding team. Abuse is never the fault of the child or vulnerable person who was abused.

It is always the responsibility of a person in a position of power or trust to ensure that appropriate boundaries are maintained, and that children and other people in their care who are vulnerable to abuse or neglect are kept safe.

The Diocese of Ely commissions an independent Listening Service from thirtyone:eight who offer a supportive listening service to those who have experienced abuse. Please see the leaflet for more information.

If you or someone you know might like to meet with an Authorised Listener please encourage them to contact the safeguarding team.
