The Portsmouth Diocese is committed to ensuring that all church officers are aware of their safeguarding responsibilities and have the core skills and knowledge to protect children and/or adults from harm.
The Church of England Safeguarding Learning & Development Framework 2021 sets out the expectations and requirements for safeguarding training for all ordained and lay church officers within the diocese, whether they are paid or unpaid.
Due to the current backlog in training caused by the Covid-19 pandemic and social distancing rules, Leadership and Domestic Abuse Awareness training will be by invitation only.
