CiT - Safeguarding: An Introduction to Keeping Adults and Children Safe *REGISTRATION CLOSED*

14 January 2021 -
10:30am to 12:30pm

Safeguarding both adults and children is about preventing the risk of harm from abuse or exploitation or having the ability to reduce it by raising awareness and supporting people in making informed decisions. It is important that staff and volunteers understand the context of safeguarding within your organisation, including the legalities, responsibilities and boundaries.

This two hour session will be facilitated by Volunteer Now and is suitable for staff, board members, directors and volunteers who have limited contact with adults and children through their work.  It covers the legal and policy context of adult and child safeguarding, categories of abuse, dealing with a disclosure, reporting procedures and boundaries for staff and volunteers.

Volunteer Now is the lead organisation for promoting and supporting volunteering across Northern Ireland and they have developed this session as a response to the Covid crisis.
