The Diocese of Parramatta Office of Safeguarding is currently updating all on-line Training Modules, face to face Training opportunities, and a range of associated e-learning options to assist individual Parishes to implement Safeguarding Policies and train staff, volunteers, and other interested parishioners.
From February 2021 all Parish employees and volunteers, working with children and vulnerable adults, will be required to undertake Safeguarding Training to earn mandatory points toward individual competencies (varying requirements for different roles) and ensuring each Parish fulfills the Safeguarding accreditation process.
NOTE: THE POINTS SYSTEM REPLACES THE PREVIOUS 7 HOUR PER YEAR REQUIREMENT
All Updates will be available early February 2021.
Paramount to all our combined efforts is ensuring the safety of children and vulnerable adults and building Safe Communities built on Justice, Voice and Integrity.
"Give justice to the weak and the fatherless; maintain the right of the afflicted and the destitute. Rescue the weak and the needy; deliver them from the hand of the wicked.”
– Psalm 82:3-4
