Safeguarding Dashboard – a NEW resource for our Parishes

Posted on Friday 12 April 2019
Safeguarding in the Church of England has changed considerably in recent years.

New policies and procedures are making churches safer, but they have also brought a significant increase in the amount of administration for Parish Safeguarding Officers. 

The Safeguarding Dashboard is addressing this challenge by making safeguarding administration simpler for everyone. This Dashboard is now available, free of charge, to parishes in the Diocese of Ely. 

The Safeguarding Dashboard has been designed to display a clear and simple dashboard on a mobile phone, tablet or computer. 

The home page allows the Parish Safeguarding Officer, incumbent, churchwardens and other authorised users to see the current status of compliance with House of Bishop’s Safeguarding Policy and Practice Guidance at a glance. Green lights bring reassurance that all is well; Amber means that action is needed, and Red means it’s urgent. 

Many of our parishes have already started using the Safeguarding Dashboard. 

To view a short (10 minutes) video of the Safeguarding Dashboard, please visit this link – https://vimeo.com/315725141 

More information is also attached in the information pack linked below. 

If you would like further information or wish for your parish to sign-up for the Safeguarding Dashboard, please arrange for an appropriate parish role holder or member of clergy to contact Sarah King in the Diocesan Safeguarding Department at sarah.king@elydiocese.org who will talk you through the sign-up process.
