These Seminars are limited to 30 people and attendees must register via email to firstname.lastname@example.org
You will then be sent an email advising of your registration.
Your guide to the Code of Conduct for Child Safety
This Code sets out in more detail the standards of behaviour which the Anglican Church in the Diocese expects from all people associated with or representing it to ensure child safety.

The General Standards
- Special responsibility of a Church authority
- Safety and welfare of children
- Treating children with equality and respect
- Venue and activities
- Abusive behaviour
- Mandatory reporting
- Inappropriate behaviour
- Privacy and confidentiality
