PSO Forums & Induction

We hold a number of events for Parish Safeguarding Officers throughout the year, including PSO forums, Inductions sessions and Safeguarding Parish Dashboard workshops. Please see below for further information:

Parish Safeguarding Officer (PSO) Forums

Throughout 2021 we held some Zoom Parish Safeguarding Officers (PSO) Forums and these were well received, with officers appreciating a window to connect with others, to think and talk together about safeguarding practice and to receive support.

The forum is informal and conversations will revolve around:-

• How are you and How are things?

• What is working well where you are in terms of safeguarding?

• What support(s) would be helpful for your safeguarding role?

This will continue throughout 2022 and will be held on the following dates, please book via Eventbrite:
