Caring for those in our care

Role descriptions

We have many volunteers in our church communities who generously give their time to participate in various ministries and roles.  Some of these roles/ministries will involve working with children, young people and adults at risk, and will require you to undertake a DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) check and training prior to commencing your role.

Please find below role descriptions for roles/ministries that you may be considering taking up in your parish.  The role descriptions include details of the DBS check and safeguarding training that you will be required to complete.
