VOLUNTARY SECTOR BRIEFING WORKING TOGETHER TO SAFEGUARDING CHILDREN

June 12 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Free

Many voluntary groups, charities, social enterprises and sports clubs in Sandwell provide services or activities for children as a core part of what they do. The staff and volunteers working with children in these settings will often play an important role in building relationships, identifying concerns, and providing direct support to children; they can often be the first trusted adult to whom a child reports abuse. Therefore, many of these groups and organisations have a crucial role to play in safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people.

This briefing session is aimed at anyone who supports children and young people within the Voluntary and Community Sector in Sandwell, whether as a paid worker, volunteer or Trustee/ committee member. The briefing will help you to understand your responsibilities to safeguard children and young people as outlined in the government’s recent Working Together Statutory Guidance 2023 to ensure that we are all playing our full role in keeping Sandwell’s children safe and promoting their wellbeing, as well as introducing you to training and support available to help you in doing this.
