Welcome to our On-demand safeguarding conference for the Voluntary Community and Social Enterprise Sector (Available from 28 May 2020)
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
