It is important that everyone’s Safeguarding status has not expired and is as up-dated as possible. Why?
- most importantly, taking the well-being of others, especially vulnerable persons, with the utmost seriousness
- with that, recognition of our own tendencies to pre-judge and make assumptions
- the overall position of the Methodist Church – connexionally and locally – if (when) issues do arise
- our qualification to hold office, exercise responsibility, & undertake tasks within the Church.
For most of us, this means undertaking updated Foundation Training; for some, advanced modules also.
If you are not clear about your current ‘status’ (level of training last undertaken & when), please check with Sue M-J.
There are still plenty places available on the Foundation training taking place online on Saturday 20th August from 10 am-1 pm. Anyone required to complete or refresh with the Foundation Module should sign up here https://foundation-module-aug2022.eventbrite.co.uk.
If online training is not possible or useful for you, please contact Sue M-J so other methods can be arranged.
