Liberal Judaism is not currently able to offer either an emergency or 24 hr response. If you have information about a safeguarding situation where a child or adult is in immediate danger or requires immediate medical attention call the emergency services on 999. Do not delay.

We understand reporting abuse may be very difficult and distressing to you and it may add to your hurt by our not being able to immediately assist you.

Liberal Judaism and LJY-Netzer take all reports of abuse within their services, whether current or historic, seriously and will immediately enact our safeguarding policy and contact the relevant authorities as appropriate. If your concern is regarding a Liberal Judaism synagogue or their members of staff you should contact their safeguarding officer directly. If you do not feel able to do so, please contact Liberal Judaism and we will support you as appropriate.

The Liberal Judaism Rabbinic team are always available to provide pastoral support. However the organisations below (listed alphabetically) are experts in offering support to victims of abuse. These agencies that are available to assist either on a 24 hour basis or through specialist helplines and services (this is not an exhaustive list):
