You will be pleased to learn that the online Safeguarding Refresher Training is now available to churches. The resource pack includes a pdf brochure, feedback form and the 90-minute video which is free to BU churches, covers aspects of both levels 2 and 3 and is valid for 2 years. 
If your church is due to update its Safeguard training, then please contact Amy Allen, the SCBA administrator at office for a link to the resources that can then be distributed to members of your church team.

SCBA Trustee Nominations

The SCBA Steering & Strategy Group (SSG) is the Council of the Association and meets around six times a year.  Members are Directors of the Company and Trustees of the Charity.  The group is made up of twelve elected members, as well as those who are either co-opted or ex-officio.  Those elected are normally appointed to serve for three years (except where filling a vacancy left by a member not completing their full term) and can be re-elected for a second term of three years. 
Members of the SSG will also be asked to serve on other Committees of our Association which cover the strategic issues of concern, as listed below.  It is hoped that those seeking election may have an interest and/or experience in one or more of these:
  • Communications
  • Pioneering
  • Home Mission
  • Mission Development
  • Justice
  • Children, Youth & Families
  • Leadership
  • Safeguarding
  • Staff, Finance and Administration
Lockdown has highlighted how communication, training and connecting with one another more deeply and widely can be enabled through a range of online options alongside face to face meetings. Nomination of a trustee with specialist knowledge of digital communications would be very helpful.
