The Australian Catholic Bishops Conference has broadened the safeguarding requirements to cover persons working with vulnerable adults as well as children. This training is mandatory for ALL church workers and volunteers whether they work with children or not. As a Volunteer/Church worker within the Archdiocese, it is necessary that you are familiar with the Safeguarding Program and how it impacts on your role. The two hour session will be facilitated by the Catholic Archdiocese of Perth Safeguarding Office covering:
- An overview of the Policies and Procedures
- The role of the Parish Safeguarding Officer
- Safeguarding and my role within the parish
- Intro to the soon to be launched SG Handbook
Two sessions will be held at Armadale Parish for your convenience: Wednesday 5 May from 2pm to 4pm OR 6.30pm to 8.30pm. Please mark your diary now! If you are unable to attend on this day, Rockingham Parish is
hosting sessions on Tuesday 18 May please contact the office for details.
