Safeguarding Advisor

Making It Easier > Roles > A Parish Officer > Safeguarding Advisor
The Safeguarding Adviser, along with the Parish Church Council and clergy, is responsible for ensuring that the church is kept up to date with the latest Safeguarding procedures. 

The Safeguarding Adviser is the main contact for a parish, but safeguarding procedures should be followed by all. 

The Diocese of Liverpool takes its duty and obligation to protect all very seriously.

All volunteers and paid staff must be recruited using the safer recruitment process, which involves disclosure and barring checks.

Safeguarding Advisers are expected to check the Safeguarding page and news and events page on a regular basis for policies, national updates and training opportunities. 

It is also mandatory for all clergy and those who hold the Bishop’s Licence to attend Safeguarding Training every three years.

We hope this section makes it easier for you to be a Safeguarding Advisor. If you can't find exactly what you are looking for, please try the Parish Officer menu or the Making it Easier drop down menu for more roles.
