About the event

This Safeguarding Workshop is targeted to staff,  parents and volunteers who are supporting sacramental programmes across the Christchurch city parishes and entities.  Part of the workshop will have a focus on specific scenarios related to the running of the programme including events, retreats, camps and activites.  

Safeguarding Workshop attendance is a requirement every three years for all volunteers, religious and staff in Catholic Parishes and Faith Communities in New Zealand. Safeguarding Training forms  part of inductions for new or prospective volunteers, religous and staff.  In advance of attending a workshop you are welcome to watch a 5 minute induction video from the  National Office for Professional Standards, outlining what is safeguarding and why we need to develop a "safeguarding lens" in a "One Church Approach".  Link to video - Safeguarding Induction Video - National Office for Professional Standards (catholic.org.nz). It is a top priority of the Catholic Church to continue to commit to implementing and maintaining cultures of safeguarding,  in order to keep our children, our vulnerable adults and all who serve and worship in our communities safe from harm.  Cultures of safeguarding are a shared responsibility.  The Church has zero tolerance for abuse.
