Safeguarding UK


The Society of the Holy Child Jesus, with its educational base and incarnational spirit, has always had the trust and reverence for every human being at the core of its mission. As members of the Congregation, we will cherish each child and vulnerable adult as a gift from God with an inherent right to dignity of life and bodily integrity which will be protected and nurtured.

The Trustees of the Society in England and Wales are fully compliant with the policies and guidelines issued by the Roman Catholic Church in England and Wales and are committed to making a prompt response to any complaint.  All houses where SHCJ live should be a safe environment for all children and adults.

If you have concerns about any safeguarding matter, please contact the Province Leader or Safeguarding Lead at the European Province Office, 01865 692121, or email

We are aligned for safeguarding matters with the Lancaster Diocese Safeguarding Commission.  If you wish to contact the Commission directly, please use the following contact information:
