Safeguarding Training Events - 12th and 14th September, Abingdon

Christ Church Abingdon will be holding two Safeguarding Training events in September for some of our own volunteers who need it, and we have capacity to include a few more from the deanery. Our Safeguarding policy states that volunteers should receive training at least every 3 years, but the Diocese is only managing to provide training for clergy and paid staff.

The training will be carried out by two members of Christ Church who have been trained by the Diocese and will use Diocesan training materials.

Venue: New Barns, Northcourt Road, Abingdon OX14 1PL

(1) Tuesday 12th September at 7.30pm - 9.30pm, designed for volunteers working with Children and Young People (CYP). The trainer will be Val Challis

(2) Thursday 14th September at 7.30pm - 9.30pm, designed for volunteers working with Vulnerable Adults (VA). The trainer will be Anne Taylor.

Charge: Participants £3.00 per head to cover the cost of photocopying handouts, and for refreshments.

If you would like to attend, please contact Roland Knight (Safeguarding Officer, Parish of North Abingdon, Christ Church) on: randjknight@gmail.com or 01235 412944.
