The Regional Safeguarding Group is seeking new members.

Would you like to contribute to the promotion and implementation of effective safeguarding provision within our churches in the Darlington and Newcastle Districts?

If the answer to this question might be 'Yes' the Regional Safeguarding Group (RSG) that covers both Districts is seeking new members and would like to hear from you.

  • The RSG promotes the safeguarding of children and adults across the two Districts.
  • It discusses programmes of awareness, training and ways of promoting District and Connexional policies, guidance and good practice in the Circuits.
  • It provides support and guidance to the Regional Safeguarding Officer, including confidential advice and discussion on casework.
  • It reports to the District Policy Committees of both Districts.
  • There is opportunity to be involved in events and meetings, for example training events, meetings arranged for Circuit Safeguarding Officers and involvement with Monitoring and Support Groups.
  • The RSG currently comprises the two Chairs of District, the Regional Safeguarding Officer and others (ordained and lay) who have safeguarding experience or other relevant professional backgrounds.
  • The group meets quarterly, and the venue usually alternates between the two Districts.
  • The current chair of the RSG is Mark Braithwaite a former senior police officer and Independent Chair to the Local Safeguarding Children's Board in Middlesbrough.
