Awareness Training

Would those volunteers who have not already done so, please attend an Awareness Training course at your earliest convenience and advise Fionnbar and Paula. Details of upcoming courses are available on the Diocesan website.

Safeguarding

Dear Volunteers;

As you will know, those volunteers in so-called “regulated” roles must go through the PVG process but also must complete training in safeguarding issues.

Marion Ben-Hamou, from the Archdiocese, has, very kindly, agreed to come to the St Andrew’s parish rooms and deliver training on 25th April from 14:00 to 16:00.

All regulated-role volunteers, or those considering such a role, are strongly encouraged to attend.

Kind Regards

Safeguarding Team
