NSPCC Safeguarding Training

All organisations that work with or come into contact with children should have safeguarding polices and procedures to ensure that every child, regardless of their age, gender, religion or ethnicity, can be protected from harm. Setting up and following good safeguarding policies and procedures means children are safe from adults and other children who might pose a risk.

On Tuesday 3rd October 2017, the NSPCC delivered a training session on the importance of safeguarding. This covered the different types of abuse, the essentials of safeguarding and how to create a policy. This was an interactive session which sought to provoke thinking on how we view safeguarding and simplifying the process of drafting a policy – each team were asked to deliver a presentation on day to day activities.
The session was tailored at faith institutions, there may be concerns that arise that may not do so in other settings. For example, within faith institutions there are cultural customs that may be adopted and may be safeguarding issues around this.
“Everyone has a responsibility to keep children and young people safe.”
