Listening Meeting for Female Religious (Alternative Date)

Event Date 30-06-2022 14:00
Event End Date 30-06-2022 16:00
Individual Price FREE

Online via Zoom

We would like to invite you to meet with us to consider how the Church’s safeguarding policies can better reflect ministries engaged in by female religious.

We want to learn about your specific ministries with children and adults and to invite you to access the views of other female religious so that the Church’s safeguarding policy, guidance and practices can better reflect the ministries of female religious.

In anticipation of the discussion we would like you to consider the following issues

  • The current child safeguarding policy references clerics and religious, is this sufficient or what language could you suggest as an alternative?
  • What ways could the Church’s policies on safeguarding children and safeguarding adults be more reflective of ministries in female Orders?
  • Do you have specific suggestions for improvements to language and activities which are more reflective of your ministries?
  • In recognition of the decreasing children’s ministry engaged in by female orders we have begun to exempt those Orders from conducting annual self-audits, however there are still some safeguarding requirements that these orders will be required to do. Do you think this is the correct approach?
  • Can you advise us if there are issues that relate to adult safeguarding that are specific to female orders?

Please come and join us so that together, we can ensure  the revised children’s policy and the template adult safeguarding policy is more reflective of your ministry.
