Day 10District Safeguarding Officer
I work from home, answering email and telephone enquiries mostly from safeguarding officers and ministers. I attend meetings across the district to talk to circuit groups or to discuss complex individual situations, as necessary. In addition I assist with Leadership Module and Training the Trainers programmes.
I am a member of one of the churches in the district where I am Church Safeguarding Officer; I am also a Circuit Foundation Module trainer.
We give thanks that the Methodist Church has a well-established network of people, volunteers and paid staff, who coordinate safeguarding at all levels of church life: church; circuit; district and connexional workers. They work together to help protect children and adults within our communities and to create safer spaces through training, advice giving and championing good practice.
