Youth Development

Safeguarding Audit Workshops

With a view to supporting Clubs to fulfil their requirements, the Head of Safeguarding Kate Hills, will be working with Club Children’s Officers and committee members going through the Club’s Safeguarding Risk Assessment (RA) & Child Safeguarding Statement (CSS) documents as well as the Safeguarding Club Audit.

In each of the workshops the Club Audit will be covered in the first hour, and the RA & CSS will be covered in the second hour.

Members should book their place as soon as possible as numbers will be limited to allow for questions and queries that will only help clubs meet this need.


Monday September 6th @7pm

Wednesday September 8th @7pm

Saturday September 18th @10am
