Safeguarding in a Missional Context

Webinar brought to you by thirtyone:eight and Mission Action Partnership

This webinar, brought to you by thirtyone:eight and Mission Action Partnership, will cover current safeguarding practices in a missional context. It's aimed at leaders and trustees of organisations and will be delivered primarily within the Northern Irish cultural and legislative context. Members of Global Connections may also join this webinar and thirtyone:eight will also be able to signpost you to the relevant context for the jurisdiction in which you live, e.g. the Charity Commission (England and Wales)/ Office of the Scottish Charity Regulator (Scotland) etc.


The webinar will cover the following areas in relation to safeguarding:

  • safeguarding as COVID-19 restrictions ease
  • safeguarding in the international context (including differences between home and host nations)
  • safeguarding within different cultural contexts
  • culture mapping and how this can benefit an organisation
  • safeguarding foreign nationals who now reside in NI (or UK) for whom culture creates a barrier
  • learning from thirtyone:eight's recent research on safeguarding in the international context

Please note: this training will cover safeguarding practices in relation to many different vulnerable groups, not just young people.
