Maggie Woolcock, the Circuit's Safeguarding Lead, has identified a free online webinar and encourages all of Church Council Members to book on to it. As safeguarding is a shared responsibility amongst all of the Church Council/managing trustees this webinar will be a very useful resource.
The course is run by The Social Care Institute for Excellence (SCIE), as part of the Safeguarding Training Fund in collaboration with the Department of Culture, Media and Sport and the National Lottery Community Fund,
There are two available sessions — 4pm Monday 30 November and 4pm Monday 14 December. The webinar will be 90 mins long and is designed to equip people with an understanding of the importance of safeguarding, trustee responsibilities in the governance of safeguarding and will offer the chance for you to reflect on the effectiveness of your current structures and systems.
