The Church has a responsibility to ensure all those who undertake work in the name of the Church are adequately trained in safeguarding matters.
The Catholic Church is dependent on Clergy, Religious and Lay people using their skills and talents to nurture and support the Catholic community.Some will be paid employees, but the majority undertake their work on a voluntary basis. Whilst some will recognise their role as a volunteer, many rightly see their caring and support contribution as part of their Christian responsibility and ministry.
But we all have a role to play in safeguarding the young or adults who may be at risk and it is for this reason that we have worked with EduCare to bring you an e-learning package that will raise awareness throughout the Catholic Community in England and Wales. The e-learning package is part of the Church's commitment to safeguarding, and is available to all members of the Catholic community free of charge.
