Event description

Description

Introduction

All charities, voluntary and community groups have a duty to keep their service users safe from harm. As most charities and community groups run through the hard work and dedication of volunteers, it is important that volunteers as well as paid staff receive basic safeguarding training.

This training is Universal Safeguarding Children. There is separate training for anyone working with vulnerable adults.

This course will cover:

  • Basic information on Child Protection and Safeguarding Children and Young People
  • Types of abuse, including child trafficking, child sexual exploitation and FGM
  • How to recognise abuse: the signs and symptons
  • What to do when you recognise abuse: the referral process
  • The importance of a multi-agency approach in safeguarding children and young people
  • Safe practice
By the end of this course you will:
  • Understand the importance of Child Protection and your role within it
  • Have an improved understanding of signs and indicators of abuse
  • Understand local Child Protection procedures and what to do if you are concerned about abuse
  • Be clear about sharing information with others
  • Have developed confidence in dealing with Child Protection issues appropriately
Who should attend:

Anyone who works or volunteers with a charity, community or voluntary sector group in Reading whose work or volunteering brings them into contact with children or young people in whatever circumstances, whether they are new to the role or require a refresher.

It is good practice for staff and volunteers to attend annual refresher training to ensure they are kept up to date on practices for safeguarding children and young people.
