Safeguarding Training


Our safeguarding training called C1/C2 is for PCC members, church wardens, bell tower captains and their deputies, pastoral visitors, nominated people and those helping or leading groups for children or vulnerable adults.

The sessions are 2.5 hours long and we put on workshops across the Diocese. We cover safeguarding of children and vulnerable adults, safer recruitment and you will get the opportunity to work through scenarios relating to your role.

To book on please…

  • Look at the dates and venues (below)
  • Discuss with your incumbent and nominated person for safeguarding
  • Book on by contacting us on 01452 410022 or

Please get in touch with us if you have any questions or queries.

We would recommend that you discuss the training opportunities at one of your upcoming PCC meetings.

We sadly can’t visit every PCC so we are offering a range of sessions across the year which we hope many will attend.  We ask nominated people to check with your PCC members if they have attended training so that you can update any of your local records.

Our safeguarding training called C3 is for Clergy and Readers.

All curates have a bespoke session to the diocese which we arrange directly.

Judith’s team will contact all clergy and readers directly to book them into the core training called C3 as these are mandatory sessions. We keep track of attendance and remind people automatically when refresher training is due, every three years. We will be in touch with all Clergy and Readers directly to book them onto these sessions.
