St Philip’s Centre is committed to the safeguarding and protection of all children, young people and adults involved in our activities and recognises that everyone who participates in our work has a role to play in promoting a safer environment and culture.

To this end, we have adopted up-to-date policies for Child Safeguarding and Safeguarding Adults, based on the Diocese of Leicester’s model policies, including ‘Promoting a Safer Church’.

The Centre’s Safeguarding Co-ordinator is Riaz Ravat, Deputy Director of St Philip’s Centre.  He can be contacted at the Centre on 0116 2733459 or by e-mail at [email protected].

Our Independent Person whom children, staff and volunteers may talk to if they wish about any concerns is Mr David Jackson, Head of Student Services at Leicester College, Abbey Park Campus, Painter Street, Leicester LE1 3WA.  He can be contacted on 0116 2242226 or by e-mail at [email protected]
