In this session we worked through the practical 10 remaining steps of the 12 step procedure.
We spend a great deal of time talking about how useful a good volunteer role outline can be, and I reminded people of the template that I devised to help you assemble the right information.
Volunteer Role Outline
We discussed the variety of Safer Recruitment forms that could be included in an Information pack. Below is a cheat sheet listing each of the forms, when to use them and where to find them.
Safeguarding Forms used in the Safer recruitment process
When people are given access or keys to a building, we create a possibility of people working alone. Therefore, I suggested these people should also have a copy of the Distict created Risk Assessment procedure.
Lone Worker Policy for Volunteer
We talked about the importance of treating people equally and following the information in the user’s guide to the Strategy for Justice, Dignity and Solidarity.
Finally, I encouraged key people to be kind to themselves. If you don’t have Safer Recruitment embedded in your church, then take time and create a stress-free plan to move the situation forwards.
My presentation was again recorded so you can watch it again or for the first time. I’ve also made my script and the PowerPoint slides available if needed.
