Muslim Women help with safeguarding
Date published: 18 September 2009
As part of their project work towards safer communities, a local British Muslim Women's Group hosted a training seminar for women at the Deeplish Community Centre.
Women volunteers, trainers, supervisors & teachers from diverse centres, Madrassas, Mosques and home-based learning classes, from across the borough, successfully completed the Child Protection Training course, which was delivered by Elaine King, the Manager of Rochdale Safeguarding Children Unit.
Zeenat Bibi, a coordinator of the Muslim Women's group commented: "Forty women from various sectors attended the course and we were delighted with both the turnout and their keen interest to safeguard and promote the welfare of children. Each participant will receive a named Certificate from The Rochdale Borough Safeguarding Children Board."
Sharifa Bibi, another organiser, added: "We have had great support in networking for initiatives from Greater Manchester Police Rochdale division's Community Relations Officer, and wish to thank all the individuals and local Alliance partners that were involved in the weekend event."
