Safeguarding Training
All those in the congregation who are working with children or vulnerable adults and hold a PVG are asked to participate in safeguarding training on a regular basis to keep up to date with the safeguarding policy of the church and the duties we all have in keeping children and vulnerable adults safe. We are hoping to organise a training session within the congregation after the summer break to provide for a larger number of workers but in the meantime, you are encouraged to participate in the on- line courses available. You can book a place through the website freechurch.org – Safeguarding section.

Courses are available on 18/08 and 12/09 and are usually of 2hour duration. Workers need only attend one training session.
