VSI Safeguarding Children, Young People & Vulnerable Adults
September 26, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm£15 - £50
The Working Together 2018 Act requires us all to recognise the vital importance of safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults.
- Are you working with children, young people and/or vulnerable adults?
- Have you a clear understanding of your responsibilities around safeguarding?
- Do you understand your organisation’s Safeguarding Policy?
- Are you confident around what you must do if you have concerns?
As Calderdale’s VCS infrastructure organisation, we understand the excellent work that voluntary & charitable groups are doing around the borough with children, young people and vulnerable adults – and we understand many of the safeguarding issues that you and your volunteers can face.
This workshop offers knowledge and practical down-to-earth advice – along with a chance to share your practice around Safeguarding within your organisation. We will also cover an overview of local assessment procedures.
The trainer for this session is Charlie Johnston our Volunteer Development officer. Previously Charlie worked for Home-Start Calderdale where she was Designated Safeguarding Lead and has written and delivered Safeguarding training for over 10 years to volunteers.
