Bristol: Safeguarding and Modern Slavery

  • Redland Church Halls Redland Green Road Bristol, England, BS6 7HE United Kingdom (map)

Action against modern slavery and good safeguarding practices go hand in hand.

There is a recognised link between a person's vulnerability and their susceptibility to being caught in modern slavery. This is a challenge which statutory authorities are beginning to tackle in their own safeguarding procedures.

Safeguarding vulnerable adults is often difficult. This evening training is designed to equip leaders within churches and social action projects with the tools to address those difficulties. We will be looking at how we shape our safeguarding policies, building structures to enable best practice, and the implications for our congregations and service users.

Are you...

... a Church leader or member of the clergy?

...responsible for safeguarding within one or more churches?

...working or volunteering in a faith based social action project?

Then this evening is for you!

Who will be leading the training?

Helen Styles, the Training and Development Officer for the Diocese of Bristol and a freelance Safeguarding Trainer and Consultant with over 20 years experience, will be leading the evening.

Places are limited so early booking is advised.
