Catholic Professional Standards Ltd Training Day
On Thursday 7th November HR Manager Coralea A’Court and Safeguarding Officer for Group Accommodation Jody Burness participated in a Catholic Professional Standards Ltd training day in Perth.
It was an opportunity for those with safeguarding responsibilities to gain a deeper understanding of the National Catholic Safeguarding Standards and how they can be applied to improve Safeguarding practices within church entities, and for all parishes and workplaces to understand that there is a public commitment to a zero-tolerance approach to child abuse. To achieve this a child safeguarding culture is championed and modelled at all levels of the entity from the top down and from the bottom up. Governance arrangements facilitate implementation of a Child Safeguarding Policy across the entities activities.
