Welsh Government has said that ‘safeguarding is everyone’s business’. Safeguarding should be a priority for all voluntary 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.

This is Group B (National Training Standards) course content, appropriate for learners in roles placed in direct contact with children, young people or adult service users/beneficiaries.
