Safeguarding is important for everyone to know about.  And safeguarding is not only about keeping children and young people safe, but also ensuring that vulnerable adults in our communities are safe from harm.  Many of us may be vulnerable at some point in our lives, whether because of illness, low mental health, frailty or dementia.  And we must all be alert to observe signs of abuse in those we know, meet or care for.

Mothers' Union in Suffolk is committed to following the safeguarding procedures of the Anglican Diocese of St Edmundsbury and Ipswich.  We also have our own Safeguarding Policy.

If you think that someone is suffering abuse, please either contact your own Parish Safeguarding Officer or use the links on this Diocesan Safeguarding webpage to contact the appropriate person or agency.
