Time & Location

About the Event

Even with the best safeguards in place, no organisation serving children/young people or adults-at-risk is immune from vulnerabilities relating to allegations against staff, irrelevant of whether that person is in a paid, voluntary or contracted position.

Sometimes the risks around allegations relate to not only the vulnerability of them occurring but also potential failings in staff distinguishing between what is a complaint and what is an allegation. These failings can be particularly common when relating to 'lesser' on 'non-significant' concerns.

By the end of this engaging and informative, 2.5hr virtual classroom course, you will be able to:

- Identify what may form concerning practice from a safeguarding perspective.

- Recognise what may be considered as an allegation against staff.

- Name key considerations when responding to allegations.

- State safeguarding strategies that may support you and your organisation when responding to allegations against staff.
