About this Event

The Devon Faith Response Team works alongside the emergency services and other agencies to provide practical, pastoral, and spiritual support for survivors, families and friends, and communities affected my major incidents, and individuals and communities evacuated from their homes following emergencies such as flooding.

If a serious incident, natural disaster or attack were to happen in Devon, Plymouth or Torbay, the members of the Devon Faith Response Team (DFRT) would work alongside the emergency services and other agencies to provide support to those affected across faith traditions. Only Chaplains that are on the DFRT list would be allowed to enter the Police cordon.

The Devon Faith Response Team holds regular training workshops, with sessions led by the Local Authorities and Police with assistance from the Salvation Army. Periodically events and seminars are held that involve HM Coroner and/or specialists in trauma care, with contributions from members of the faith communities.

The DFRT continues to look for new volunteers and welcomes enquiries from interested people who are members of local churches and other faith communities. Existing Chaplains requiring a refresher will be welcome.

Further information will be sent out with the joining instructions. A light sandwich lunch will be available on the day.

You will not be pressured to sign up as part of the response team after this event.

ADDITIONAL REQUIREMENTS: If you have any mobility or any specific dietary requirements please email the mission & ministry team: m&m@exeter.anglican.org by Friday 1st November, at the latest.
