Safeguarding for projects working with women in prostitution
Wed 10 May 2017, 11:00 – 16:30 BST
At Beyond the Streets we recommend that Safeguarding training be refreshed annually. This day will cover much of 2016 but added workshops in the afternoon will stream line participants according to experience and look more specifically at 'live examples' of Safeguarding scenarios that we might relate to as projects working with women in prostitution.
Elaine Davidson is our trainer with support from the Beyond the Streets staff. The day aims to raise awareness of the legal responsibilities of safeguarding in charities dealing with vulnerable adults. We aim to apply this information to the contexts of projects that work with those in prostitution.
By the end of the day you will have:
1) A greater understanding of Safeguarding legislation and the current updates/changes in legislation (ED)
2) Understood the need for Safeguarding and what we can learn from serious failures (ED)
3) Understood SG red flags and how they relate to this sector
3) Increased confidence regarding safeguarding incidents, and increased clarity on procedures
4) Explored current practice and a chance to process recent incidents/thoughts and concerns
5) Identified the next steps for you and your project/team
