Parish Safeguarding Dashboard
The Diocese of Exeter has subscribed to the Parish Safeguarding Dashboards online tool to make it easier for our churches to manage their safeguarding requirements. It is free for parishes to register, update and receive action plans on demand. The Dashboards also enable the Diocesan Safeguarding Team and senior clergy to ensure each parish is up to date with its safeguarding administration and offer support to those who may be struggling.
The Dashboard has been designed to display a clear and simple dashboard on a computer, mobile phone or tablet. Each dashboard can have one ‘owner’, who can update and amend it, and multiple ‘viewers’ who are able to see it’s progress. The dashboard overview page allows the owner and viewers to see the current status of compliance at a glance. A green light would mean all is well, amber would mean that action is needed and red would mean urgent action is required.
The advantages for parishes are illustrated in this short video…
Parishes already signed up to the dashboard are having good experiences with it, finding it a useful tool to help them fulfil and maintain their safeguarding requirements easily. Have a look at some feedback from parishes who are already using the Dashboard and take a tour of the Safeguarding Dashboards website for more information.
How can I sign my parish up for it’s own safeguarding dashboard?
All parishes should have been sent an ‘invitation’ to sign-up to the Parish Dashboard. However, if any parishes have yet to register, they can do so by emailing the Diocesan Safeguarding Team providing the name of the parish and the email addresses of the nominated ‘owner’ and any additional ‘viewers’. The Safeguarding team will then register the users and send out email invites to them so they can start using their dashboard.
