Creating Safer Space Foundation Module Training

HAEBEA has adopted the 'Creating Safer Space' safeguarding training program developed by the Methodist Church for all adults, both volunteer and paid, working in different roles in Methodist and URC Churches.

The Creating Safer Space Foundation Module safeguarding training will help you to:

  • know that safeguarding is everyone's responsibility and integral to being church
  • have a better understanding of good safeguarding practice
  • know when to have concerns about the safety and welfare of a child or adult
  • appreciate your responsibility for sharing concerns about a child or adult
  • be aware of who in the Church to go to with any concerns
  • recognise potential blocks within the Church to responding well
  • be aware of the impact of the Past Cases Reviews (PCR) findings on good practice
