Online Safeguarding Training

Core 1 is now available to complete online and must be completed before attending face to face modules. Please note that Core 0 is undergoing substantial revision by the national safeguarding team. We therefore strongly encourage that all those for whom Core 0 is recommended, including PCC members, complete the Core 1 module pending the revision.

Face to face Core 1 training is still available at a parish level or for small groups by request.

We would be happy to attend PCC meetings to respond to any questions arising from the training or to facilitate a discussion about the safeguarding responsibilities of the PCC in the parish or benefice. Please email Boo Squires, Safeguarding Administrator, to arrange this.
