Unfortunately this session has been cancelled.

The Creating Safer Space Foundation Module 2020 training will help you:

  • appreciate how safeguarding is everyone's responsibility and fundamental to the culture of a flourishing Church
  • have a better understanding of good safeguarding practices within the Methodist Church, and understand its unique position in creating a safe space for all
  • promote awareness and extend an inclusive welcome to those who have experienced abuse
  • recognise, respond, record and refer relevant concerns about the safety and welfare of a child or adult, and recognise blocks to good practice
  • learn from evidence from the Methodist Past Cases Review (2015-17) and note the current national context, eg the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse (IICSA)

The training's overall aim is to increase safeguarding awareness, so the Church can exercise its duty of care to all: its members, office-holders and anyone who comes through its doors. We create a safer Church by developing your understanding of, and confidence in, our safeguarding processes and your place within these processes.

The training will be delivered via Zoom. The Zoom link and further details will be sent closer to the time. We will also send you electronic versions of the documents you will need.
