Safeguarding Dashboard Resources

What should a safeguarding notice board display in your parish premises?

  • A copy of the parish policy signed within the last year with the relevant contact details on.
  • An A3 policy poster is available in the Parish Handbook. There is also an editable version of this poster with the Diocese of Worcester information pre-filled. 
  • A ChildLine poster should be displayed in all premises where children’s and youth groups regularly meet.
  • You may also wish to display this poster ‘What to do if…’ with advice and contact details for responding to safeguarding concerns.

Sample Role Descriptions

These example role descriptions, sourced from various places and formatted into the CofE style, are designed to provide you with a suitable template and format to create role descriptions for your own parish. We would ask you to carefully describe the relevant duties, adding/amending as necessary to match the description to the individual role that is carried out in your local context. 

NB: If a sample role description is missing and you have a version please share it with us so that we can make it available to others!

For any further support with this please contact either Assistant DSA Delia Stokes or DBS Administrator Liz Toone.
