Safeguarding and DBS factsheet

The Diocesan Safeguarding Adviser wishes to highlight government information designed to address specific concerns that people involved in supporting their community may have at this time.

Read the government advice

The advice is split into two sections:

  1. Advice for those organising a community volunteer group, and
  2. Advice for individuals wanting to assist those in their local community

This may be relevant to many people involved with parish life.

You may also want to read this government information alongside the latest advice from the National Safeguarding Team, issued on the 27 March to help the Church observe good safeguarding practice.
