Safeguarding means the range of measures we have in place to protect people in our organisation, or those we come into contact with, from abuse and maltreatment of any kind. This means we have to think about safeguarding in everything we do: including policy and procedure writing, roles and responsibilities, safer recruitment, concerns and complaints management, ethical fundraising, quality assurance and safeguarding risk assessments of all our activities. We also have to ensure that beneficiaries, staff and volunteers feel confident and able to raise any concerns or complaints appropriately.

This course is in line with CQC, Ofsted, Charity Commission and best practice guidelines, as well as local Safeguarding Board requirements. Certificates of attendance are valid for two years. 

Outcomes

By the end of the day you will be able to:

  • name the key adult and child safeguarding legislation, guidance & procedures relevant to the sector
  • identify the key stages of safer recruitment and supervision of staff and volunteers
  • explain how and when safeguarding concerns and/or allegations should be referred and managed by your organisation appropriately
  • review and assess the policies, procedures, safer working practices and codes of conduct for all staff and volunteers in your organisation, and identify an action plan if needed
