This training should be attended by all Ministers of URC Churches within the Yorkshire Synod, who have not already attended such a session in the last three years. It will be particularly relevant for Ministers who have recently moved into Yorkshire Synod. It is also for Church Safeguarding Link People who have not attended leadership training in the last 3 years.

The training will be delivered by the Synod Safeguarding Advisor, Geraldine Sands, plus a member of the Synod Safeguarding Committee. The training aims to build confidence and competence amongst those of us who would need to lead a safeguarding response in a church setting. It will briefly refresh participants’ understanding of types of abuse and how to recognise them and strengthen awareness of how to handle some of the most complex safeguarding issues, especially managing offenders in a church setting.

To book a place on either of these training sessions, please download and complete the attached booking form asap and send to Sally Duxbury at moderatorpa@urcyorkshire.org.uk or post to the Synod Office.

Tea and coffee plus copies of the slides and training materials will be provided at the session.
