Dear Friends,

After seven years as Triratna’s European Chairs’ Assembly’s Safeguarding officer I will be moving on at the end of June; and Amaladipa has recently stepped down as the ECA’s Safeguarding Adviser, after volunteering six years of invaluable work, support and advice, much of it on top of her full-time job as a senior leader in the probation service.

I am so grateful to Amaladipa for the support and expertise she has contributed to this work, helping me build it up from nothing. I could not have done it without her - not without her sometimes somewhat grim sense of humour (!) and not without her unfailing compassion for those who have been harmed and those who have caused harm.

I am also thankful to all those who have supported us and helped to build up an understanding of Safeguarding in Triratna; and really proud that our centres were able to make so much progress in this area in such a short time.

There is more to do, of course, but now we are a bit tired! I am looking forward to some months’ rest over the Swedish summer before seeking further employment of some kind.

I am happy to say that Hridayagita (previously Safeguarding officer at Taraloka) will be taking over as ECA Safeguarding officer from 1st July, and no doubt will be introducing herself soon.

With much metta,
safeguarding [at]
