"As a former Chief Inspector in the Metropolitan Police, one who has conducted care cases and who was on the original Evangelical Alliance child protection policy working party, I commend Maeve Whitchurch on her professional, yet personal and practical approach to the Level 2 Training I attended with members of my church, all of whom agreed that it was an excellent session.  I encourage all Ministers, Trustees and Children's & Young Persons' workers to attend if they haven't already done so.  We also look forward to our already-booked Level 3 session.  Well done, Maeve!"
