LEVEL 1 SESSIONS and are suitable for volunteers (2 hours)

Our training is based on the policies and practice as found in our handbook.  Training aims to equip workers and volunteers and will help them to be familiar with current guidelines and know what to do if they are concerned about a situation or an individual.

Safeguarding training is essential for all those who work or volunteer with children, youth, vulnerable adults and is necessary to meet the requirements the Charities Commission and usually your insurance policy.

 Here are some comments from people who have attended our training sessions:

"It was explained thoroughly and was easy to follow"     " "Best Safeguarding training I have attended- relevant, clear and not alarming"

"No nonsense not sensationalised approach to serious matters - Worthwhile seminar - such an important topic"       Clear, concise and applicable to churches.

"The training was both clear and interesting. It has increased my understanding of abuse and how to deal with it."  "Very good , clear and concise outlining of the importance and procedures for Safeguarding within a church setting.""

Thank you for this professional training, it promotes good practice and provokes action for the local church."
