Raising Awareness of Domestic Abuse - online course
This course will help you to develop a greater understanding of what Domestic Abuse is, who it affects, as well as its impact on individuals, children, the wider family, and the community. How does this relate to Christian faith and Church communities? By the end of the course you will have an increased awareness of the needs of domestic abuse survivors in order to support them effectively, while at the same time understanding the boundaries and limitations of your own role. This course is recommended for everyone and is mandatory for the following:

  • Anyone holding the Bishop’s licence, commission, authorisation, or permission (clergy, PtO, Readers, LLMs)
  • Bishops Visitors / Pastoral Visitors
  • Safeguarding Officers
  • Ordinands during IME 1
  • PCC Members / Lay Chapter Members.
  • Staff at Theological Education Institutions with student facing roles.
  • Members of the Diocesan Safeguarding Advisory Panel.

Please refer to the Pathway for more information on the course aims and outcomes. The link to the online training is here. You will need to log in to your Church of England Safeguarding Training Portal account to access the learning.


Safer Recruitment practice is changing
Please be advised that we will be providing an update on how this affects the Diocese in Europe as soon as we are able to. At this time we do not recommend that you complete the online Safer Recruitment course available through the Church of England training portal until our policy decisions are agreed.
