Adults at risk/Vulnerable adults training eventPosted by Munisha on Mon, 21 August, 2017 - 13:32
Booking now open for a half day training event for Triratna Safeguarding officers and trustees in the UK and Ireland, helping us all develop our understanding of the definition of ”Adults at risk’ previously known as ‘Vulnerable adults’.
Bookings by email to
munisha [at] triratnadevelopment.org
Who can attend?
This is an event for Order members only: primarily Safeguarding officers - but you are also welcome to send a Chair or trustee so that more than one person in your Centre or enterprise has the training and can help share this with your council etc.
Why is this important?
Last November we held training in child protection: how to keep those under 18 safe from harm.
Now we need to look at a much less well defined area: how to meet charities’ duty of care to those who are 18 or over and may be vulnerable to harm in some situations.
£20 per person
Please bring cash or a cheque on the day.
(Cheques to Triratna Chairs’ Assembly, please.)
PS Why must your Safeguarding officer be an Order member?
1) It’s very important that Safeguarding is led by those most senior so that everyone can see your charity and sangha take it very seriously.
2) Although some mitras have excellent specialist Safeguarding knowledge, they cannot be put in a position where they might have to challenge an Order member’s behaviour - especially if they depend on local Order members’ good opinion of them, to approve their ordination request, for example.
