Introduction to Safeguarding in the Voluntary Sector

21 October 2020 | 9:30am – 12:00pm

Delivered through the medium of English

Aim

Find out about key areas of safeguarding and good practice for voluntary sector organisations in Wales.

Content

Welsh Government has said that “Safeguarding is everyone’s business”. Safeguarding should be a priority for all voluntary sector organisations, and especially those that work with children, young people and adults at risk.

This course will provide an introduction to safeguarding good practice for people who work or volunteer in voluntary organisations in Wales.

Good and appropriate safeguarding provides public reassurance about your organisation and contributes to the positive reputation of the voluntary sector in general.

Learning Outcomes

By the end of the course participants will:

  • Have increased understanding of what is meant by “safeguarding” and how it is related to their role
  • Have increased awareness of expected safeguarding policy and practice for voluntary organisations
  • Have increased awareness of the legislation that underpins safeguarding in Wale
  • Know where to find a wider range of safeguarding resources

Who the session is for

This online course is particularly suitable for staff, volunteers and trustees of voluntary sector organisations who want to increase their knowledge and understanding of safeguarding. It can also be used to compliment, or as a refresher for, face-to-face training.

The course will involve some preparatory work and a follow up quiz to test your knowledge. A certificate of attendance will be provided.

We are pleased to be able to offer this course for free thanks to funding from Welsh Government.
