Team News

First of all a big welcome to Brett Riches who is joining us at the end of April as our new part time Diocesan Safeguarding Officer to work alongside Becca.  We will be sending him and out about to meet folk over the coming months, but Brett will be working Monday and Tuesdays.  Both he and Becca will be working together each Wednesday as these are our designated training days. And then Becca will continue to work Thursdays and Fridays.  Brett doesn’t have an email address here yet but we’ll let you know when he does.

Becky Smith will remain your point of contact for all safeguarding training enquiries and bookings (we have over 40 training sessions being offered across the year and there will be more to follow in the Autumn that will include Safer Recruitment, and Domestic Abuse and Violence). Becky can be contacted on bsmith@glosdioc.org.uk  Do check out our website for dates of the training. We liaise directly with clergy and Readers, but please do continue to encourage  PCC members to book on. PCC members and Safeguarding Checks fact sheet
