COVID-19: Reporting abuse at this time
If you are concerned about the welfare of a child or adult and believe them to be at immediate risk, do not delay in contacting the Police or Social Work Services (Telephone: 0300 343 1505)
It is the policy of the Catholic Church in Scotland to report all allegations of abuse to statutory authorities, regardless of whether the abuse occurred recently or in the past, or whether the accused person is living or dead.
If you are in any role within the Archdiocese of Glasgow, you must refer allegations directly to Caterina O’Connor (Safeguarding Adviser), caterina.o’email@example.com
If you are a member of the public, you should refer allegations either directly to the Police and/or to Caterina O’Connor (Safeguarding Adviser).
You can also contact the Scottish Catholic Safeguarding Service (SCSS) by telephoning
0141 332 7177 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
For many survivors of abuse, isolation can intensify feelings of fear and anxiety. We have a section on Support Services on our website. Many of these helping agencies have telephone and email services that can be contacted for advice and support during these difficult times
