Safeguarding training

  • In an emergency situation please call the Police on 999.

The Church of England has a safeguarding learning and development framework which ensures that training is available to everyone in every Church of England community to enable them to safeguard children and adults and to work and worship safely together. The framework was approved by the House of Bishops in December 2015 and has been revised and reissued in January 2017 and again in July 2019.

A Diocesan Training Strategy has been adopted for 2020 - 2023 and is available here: Diocese of Bristol Safeguarding Training Strategy 2020 - 2023

The Diocesan Safeguarding Adviser (DSA)  and Diocesan Training and Development Officer are  available to advise on training and other safeguarding practice issues.
