Parish Safeguarding Dashboard

Safeguarding has changed considerably in recent years. New policies and procedures are making organisations safer, but they have also significantly increased the amount of administration for safeguarding officers.

Safeguarding Dashboards is addressing this challenge by making safeguarding administration simpler for everyone. It is available free of charge to Church of England churches in participating dioceses.

The tool has been designed to display a clear and simple dashboard allowing the Parish Safeguarding Officer, vicar, curate, churchwardens and other authorised users to see the current status of compliance at a glance. A green light would mean all is well, amber would mean that action is needed and red would mean urgent action was needed.

The Parish Safeguarding Dashboard also enables the Diocesan Safeguarding Team to make sure that each parish is up-to-date with its safeguarding administration and help those that may be struggling.

If you have not already started using the Dashboard please contact Theresa Winship at theresa.winship@portsmouth.anglican.org who will send you an invitation to join.
