National Training Modules for PSRs and Volunteers

Delivered by Sebastian Carro – Safeguarding Training lead for Catholic Safeguarding Standards Agency (CSSA)

Creating a Safe Environment (please choose 1 date to attend)

In this module we will look at how we can create a safer church environment for all those who work, volunteer and worship within our churches in our parishes.

In safeguarding children’s and adults modules we have looked at the 8 standards form the Elliot review and how these apply to safeguarding children and adults at risk.

We will in this module look at some other ways in which we can create a safe space within our church to include:

  1. Safe recruitment and the importance of a proper induction
  2. Prevention of abuse of children and adults, looking specifically at bullying and harassment, online safety, organising events and overnight accommodation.
  3. Low level concern policy for adults and the purpose of safeguarding plans
  4. Domestic abuse and your role in reporting this
  5. Mental Health including self-harm and children’s mental health
  6. Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking
  7. Whistle Blowing and complaints
