Safeguarding galore!

One of the most interesting aspects of being freelance is seeing what area of work you focus on at different times.  It has been a summer of safeguarding!  This has included training a group of parents in an introductory safeguarding course, and a group of workers who wanted to progress onto a more advanced course. More details can be found here.

It was interesting to work with a charity who support adults at risk to help them build staff confidence to recognise and respond to safeguarding concerns.  Good to think with them about how their processes work and to ensure that all the staff and volunteers were confident in record keeping and what to do if they had a concern.

In my volunteer role, I was asked to work with interim Head of Safeguarding to look with the board of trustees at Girlguiding at the responsibilities of trustees in relation to safeguarding. 

We used the excellent Charity Commissioners resource – 10 actions trustee boards need to take to ensure good safeguarding governance – for the basis of a great discussion about what was going well, and areas to work on.  We are busy developing this into a next steps action plan.

This work was also useful to remind me of my responsibilities as a volunteer trustee for another charity.

In the course of the last few weeks I must have met over 100 different people at these sessions – volunteers, paid staff and groups of parents.  What has really impressed me, whether they are someone who already has a lot of knowledge or someone on their first safeguarding learning experience is the desire to learn, change and make things better in our society to ensure that the most vulnerable have a voice. Thank you to you all and I hope that you will keep up the good work!
