THIS IS FOR ALL VOLUNTEERS WORKING WITH
CHILDREN AND YOUNG PEOPLE
As part of our care and concern for both children, young people and our volunteer leaders we have a Child Protection Policy adopted from Taking Care Guidelines developed by the Presbyterian Church in Ireland. Michael Yeates has recently become our Designated Person and will be conducting a thorough review of our records and processes to ensure that they are up to date.
As it is some years since volunteers received Child Protection Training it has been agreed that every leader must attend the Taking Care training that is planned for September 2019.
This announcement is to give leaders plenty of time to get one of the two dates in their diary.
The dates are Thursday 12th September at 7.30pm or Saturday 14th September at 10am
The training is compulsory for all leaders and will last for 2 hours. There is no need to register in advance as a register will be taken at each training session.
