We wanted to thank you for your commitment to safeguarding and your work to date on the Safeguarding Parish Dashboard.
Newcastle Diocese’s amazing progress towards the full implementation of the House Of Bishops safeguarding requirements has been noticed and complimented nationally.
Well done there has been great leadership demonstrated!
We are now in the final push of what has been an 18 month implementation phase for the safeguarding dashboard, with a target of November 2022 to have all Parishes at Level 3.
We currently have 68 Parishes at Level 2, we want to assist you, as much as we can, so that you can reach Level 3 before the end of November.
Below are a series of dates for Zoom Conversations regarding the move from Level 2 to Level 3, please book a place via Eventbrite and come along.
We may be able to assist with model documents that are required, or information about policies/procedures/training.
In addition I am sure we will learn from each other while sharing good practice.
If anyone would want/need an in person conversation don’t hesitate to contact.
All best wishes,
Diocesan Safeguarding Team
