The URC is committed to providing a standardised training programme to ensure that all individuals working with children, young people and adults at risk understand the processes and policies of the URC.
The Safeguarding Training framework is currently in draft but will outline the intention to provide modular safeguarding training at the following levels:
All face-to-face training has been suspended until further notice, although this is being reviewed on a regular basis in line with government guidance. In the meantime, BASIC safeguarding training will be delivered via Zoom and dates will be released shortly.
To support churches with safeguarding issues and concerns, there will be periodic additional events for people to attend both online and face to face (when the guidelines allow!)
Forthcoming Zoom events
- Church Safeguarding Coordinator networking meetings – starting date to be confirmed
- Drop-In Safeguarding surgeries – every fortnight - day, time to be confirmed.
