About the Event

We have developed our training programme to equip charity trustees with the knowledge they need to carry out their roles effectively.  This webinar is an introduction to safeguarding children and is designed as a basic-level introduction for trustees of charities that work with children.  The session will cover:

  • Why safeguarding must be a key priority for all charities;
  • The framework of legislation and guidance relevant to protecting children;
  • What is meant by the terms ‘safeguarding’ and ‘child protection’;
  • Understanding different types of abuse;
  • Identifying signs and indicators of abuse;
  • Understanding how to respond to disclosures or concerns that relate to the safety and welfare of children;
  • How to report disclosures or concerns and who you should report them to;
  • How to record disclosures or concerns.

Future sessions will cover good safeguarding governance and Charity Commission expectations, safe recruitment, safeguarding and data protection requirements, and reporting serious incidents.
