How confident are you and your staff when it comes to your Safeguarding policies, procedures and practices?


Dr Colette Limbrick, the Director of Catholic Safeguarding Advisory Services (CSAS), says:

‘It is expected that today everyone in the world of Catholic social action, whether clergy or lay, whether a large established organisation or a small or new charity, be able to not just answer positively but demonstrate the answers to this question concretely’.


She will lead a Safeguarding training day at CSAN on Friday 29 March, including one-to-one surgery sessions, to help your organisation become more confident in this crucial area.


10.30am-12.30pm: ‘Safeguarding 101’ – for organisations wanting basic guidance or a refresher session




1-2.30pm: ‘The Next Level of Safeguarding Practice’ – suitable for all but especially those ready to improve from learnings from the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse reports and other latest case studies and best practices.


2.40pm-3.30pm: 10-minute private surgery sessions with Dr Colette Limbrick


Please note: this one-day workshop will be open to all in the world of Catholic social action including those not in membership, and as such booking will be taken on a first-come first-served basis, and a small contribution per person is requested to help us cover the costs.

CSAN Members: £10pp for the whole day; £6pp for half-day, including lunch.

Non-CSAN Members: £20pp for the whole day; £12pp for half-day, including lunch.


Please let the Officer for Caritas Education and Learning, Elize Sakamoto [email protected], know of your interest by Monday 11 March indicating: 1) whether you would like to attend for the whole day, morning only or afternoon only; 2) whether you would like a private session With Dr Limbrick.


We hope to see as many of you as possible on Friday 29 March.
