About the Event

The news is a regular reminder of how organisations serving children are at risk of being exploited by unsafe people. This creates risks for the organisation both in potential harm to children/young people and in receiving allegations against staff.

Sadly, whether planned or opportunistic, the vulnerabilities and risks surrounding organisations being exploited by unsafe people are ever-present.

If you work with or your organisation serves children and young people, this course is for you!  This 1-day event will guide you through exploring:

  • How unsafe people can exploit organisations;
  • The fundamental measures that can help to safeguard an organisation from being exploited; and
  • How organisations can create a ‘Safeguarding Culture’ that safeguards everyone (children, staff and the organisation) and promotes safe practice, reducing the possibilities of allegations against staff.

All attendees receive a complimentary copy of our Sport and Recreation Safeguarding Toolkit. This Toolkit will serve as an ongoing resource helping you take forward all key learning points and provide you with practical resources to help strengthen key safeguards. While being tailored to Sport and Active Recreation, the Toolkit’s learnings and resources are far-reaching and transfer to all those serving children. Including but not exclusive to - NGOs/Charities, Community Organisations, Faith Settings, Government Organisations, etc. Hence being associated with this course.
