If a serious accident, natural disaster or attack were to happen in Devon, Plymouth or Torbay, the members of the Devon Faith Response Team would work alongside the emergency services and other agencies to provide support for victims and their families and loved ones.
The Devon Faiths Response Team (DFRT) holds regular training workshops, with sessions led by various blue light services, HM Coroner and trauma specialists, and contributions from members of the faith communities.
More than 70 volunteers from 7 different churches and 6 other faith and belief traditions have now been trained, but the DFRT continues to look for new volunteers and welcomes enquiries from interested people who are members of local churches and other faith communities.
The next training day will be held on 4 September 2015 at Windsor House, Tavistock Road, Plymouth. If you are interested, please contact Maia Miller on firstname.lastname@example.org.
