Safeguarding

Sarah G 

Safeguarding is an area which we take very seriously and we work hard to develop a culture where all feel safe within the life of the parish.  We have adopted the House of Bishop's Safeguarding Policy and Practice Guidance which can be viewed on The Trinity Parish website.  Our Parish Safeguarding Officer is Sarah Gardner.  


Training
Everyone who works/volunteers with children, young people and adults who may be vulnerable needs to complete the C0 course and the C1 course. Both are interactive online courses, are completely free and each takes up to one hour to complete. All you need is access to the internet and an email address. 
We also provide annual safeguarding refresher training to all those who work/volunteer with children, young people and adults.
