Board of Education (N.I.)
Vulnerable Adults Awareness Training
The Board of Education (Northern Ireland) will run six seminars this autumn to inform clergy of the current legislation and policy in relation to vulnerable adults.
These sessions will be delivered by Dr Peter Hamill (Secretary to the Board) and Margaret Yarr (Child Protection Officer), and will include opportunities to ask questions and also to input into how best parishes can be supported.
Each session will cover the definition of a vulnerable adult, legal requirements when dealing with vulnerable adults (including Access NI disclosures), and best practice for churches working with vulnerable adults.
All events will take place from 10.00am to 12.30pm and all clergy are invited to attend:
Tuesday, 6th October – St Macartin’s Cathedral Halls, Enniskillen
Thursday, 8th October – St Patrick’s Parish Halls, Ballymena
