Safeguarding Notice ………..

All those who volunteer in the Parish to work with children or adults who may be vulnerable, must  be vetted and must take on up-to-date training offered by the Safeguarding Office in the Diocese of Down and Connor. Since the beginning of September 2017 updated training has been available. Many volunteers in the Parish undertook the new updated training during the last year and we thank them for that. For anyone who has not yet attended one of the new training sessions, the following explains who needs to attend the different levels of training, how to apply for a place and includes the dates for Level 1 Training only. The dates for Level 2 will be available in October. Safeguarding our children and adults who may be vulnerable is extremely important to all of us and we must ensure that we are following the advice and guidance as laid down for us by the Safeguarding Office. Thank you all for your co-operation with this.     The Parish Safeguarding Committee.
