Safeguarding webinar – 11 November 2020 | 10:00am – 11:00am

Delivered through the medium of English

Aim

Find out how to review and amend your safeguarding policy in relation to the COVID-19 crisis.

Content

The COVID-19 crisis has raised multiple safeguarding issues for voluntary organisations, from how to adapt services to meet the needs of people who may be at risk and how to keep staff, beneficiaries and volunteers safe in this situation. Never has the phrase “Safeguarding is everyone’s business” been more relevant.

The first in our autumn series of webinars will help you review your safeguarding policy and provide practical guidance on how to go about updating and amending it to make sure it’s fit for purpose.

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