St. Padarns is responsible for developing and delivering safeguarding training for the Church in Wales. A healthy Christian community is one which ensures and nurtures the wellbeing of all. Safeguarding needs to be embedded in all aspects of the life and ministry of the Church, and safeguarding training and development at St. Padarns is delivered in this context.
The training you will access through St. Padarns will equip you and your church to engage positively with the protection of children, young people and vulnerable adults in a practical and informed manner.
The training is designed and delivered by experienced and skilled trainers, committed to ensuring the Church is safe and welcoming place for all, who understand the statutory requirements of safeguarding children and adults, and how these are carried out in the context of the Church in Wales.
Safeguarding Awareness Course
The church should be a community that is welcoming and hospitable to all. We believe that if it isn’t safe, it isn’t the Church. The Church in Wales Safeguarding Awareness Course is aimed at all of us within our church communities, and is intended to equip you to help make the church – and keep the church – a safe place.
