Safeguarding Training

On Saturday 11 November we have a training day for people involved with children and youth work within the church. This is in the Gelliwastad building from 9am to 5pm.  Helpers need only attend the morning, while leaders should attend the afternoon also.

We believe that every child, young person and vulnerable adult should be valued, safe and protected from harm at all times. Therefore, It is a requirement of our Safeguarding Policy that everyone who is involved with children and youth work must undergo regular training.

For more information on the training course, please contact Janet Williams
