At Saint Anne's, the safety and care of everyone in our community are paramount.
Safeguarding Online is online training provided through the Church Pension Group. Safeguarding Online provides training, in short, focused courses that can normally be completed in 30-45 minutes. These courses can be taken from any location where a high-speed Internet connection is available. The training is provided at no cost to participants.
