Your church website must contain details of who the parish safeguarding coordinator is and how they can be contacted.
We also kindly request that your parish website describes the arrangement that the diocese has with an external partner which provides DBS services, a helpline and support in case you unable to contact the Diocesan Safeguarding Adviser in an emergency. We suggest that churches include the following statement on their websites:
"The Diocese of Manchester partners with thirtyone:eight in relation to Disclosure (i.e. DBS) services and accessing their safeguarding Helpline when required. For DBS related queries, please contact them on 0303 003 1111 option 1.
In the event of the Diocesan Safeguarding Adviser being unavailable due to being on holiday or other absence, you will be advised to contact thirtyone:eight for safeguarding advice on 0303 003 1111. This also includes any emergency safeguarding queries outside of office hours on weekdays and weekends. An Information Sharing Agreement between the two organisations will allow fhe Diocesan Safeguarding Adviser to receive a copy of the advice thirtyone:eight may offer the parish church/caller.
