Advice, Consultancy & Support
Our packages have various options included , such as discounts on training, DBS's processed for **free and discounts on the annual membership fee for some organisations affiliated to a larger umbrella organisation.
Lots of support is available on our website and via email but sometimes more specialist support is needed. This is why we have our appointment system on our site.
We also operate an advice and support line together with zoom appointments.

The appointments system will change and will be a chargeable appointment system. There will continue to be 20% off these costs for gold member churches

Membership and DBS Costs
We are committed to keeping our costs as low as we can for churches and faith-based charities. We understand that costs can sometimes be an issue or a barrier but having professional safeguarding advice and guidance should not be looked at as a cost, but as an investment and form of insurance to ensure that a church can safely continue with its kingdom work. We would recommend safeguarding resourcing be looked at within your church's budget management.
