Bishop John has agreed to implement this new diocesan policy for all volunteers with PVG certificates.
The Diocesan Safeguarding Advisory Group expects that all volunteers doing regulated work with children and/or vulnerable adults will attend a Level 1 training session by the end of 2017. This is now diocesan policy. For those who failed to attend a session in 2017, a couple of sessions have been arranged for January 2018.
The next training session will take place in:
St John’s parish hall, Barrhead on Wednesday 17th January: 7pm-8.30pm
St Mirin’s parish Hall, Paisley on Saturday 27th January: 10.30am-12noon
Please contact Sarah Jane at the Diocesan Safeguarding office to register for a training session. Email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 0141 847 6138 to register for a training session. There will be limited space at each session, therefore volunteers should register up to one week before the date of the training session.
