Stay safe. See it. Recognise it. report it.

Keeping people safe and sound means that we need to recognise abuse when we see it. If you work with people in a paid or voluntary role and want to know how to keep people safe and sound; to understand some of the safeguarding challenges people may be facing then this is for you. Some, not all, of the resources are specific to challenges Covid-19 brings about through ‘lockdown’ and isolation.

The resources are divided into ‘Areas of Interest’/ ‘Workshops’. Each ‘Workshop’ has a pre-recorded introduction to the subject as well as links to a range of high quality, trusted resources if you want to know more about the subject. It’s a fabulous library of resources. You will be able to contact us via email to ask questions. Explore the resources at a time and pace that suits you.

Please use the FAQ section at the button of this page if you need more information
