Southend University Hospital

If you or a relative are admitted to the hospital, please notify our Parish Priest or the Hospital Chaplain



God created people in his own image and likeness, which gives everyone value and dignity. We value all people and support them and protect them from harm. We have a special responsibility for safeguarding the wellbeing of children and vulnerable adults.

If you volunteer for a role that brings you into contact with children, young people or vulnerable adults then you must first complete a volunteer application form, then undergo an enhanced level Disclosure and Barring Services check. This is a part of the Diocese's safeguarding process. Our Safeguarding Representative is Jackie Sullens, and she will help you with the relevant paperwork. Readers and ushers do not require these checks.

If you have any questions about safeguarding in the parish, you can contact Jackie or Fr Kevin to discuss in confidence. The Diocese of Brentwood Safeguarding Office has more information. To contact Jackie, email or use the button:
