We offer bespoke briefings and workshops about the changing world of safeguarding, risk assessment, effective management approaches and how to ensure your staff understand their responsibilities.
The topics can be tailored to address the specific issues of your sector and to cascade to staff and members.
Previous workshops include:
Briefing on the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) and on line checking system
An overview of the roles of the Disclosure and Barring Service, types of disclosure, eligibility, application process, police records checks and the online checking system.
Strategic Safeguarding case study – Parkinson’s UK
A case study of how Safeguarding Matters helped Parkinson’s UK develop their comprehensive safeguarding policy with supporting documents and scenario based training which is now seen as best practice within the charity sector.
While acknowledging that cases of abuse are very rare, it protects not only people with Parkinson’s, but also volunteers, supporters and staff. It is a cohesive system of proportionate measures, both preventative and reactive, that ensure everyone is mindful about safeguarding.
Discussion of the culture changes necessary and managing the increased organisational responsibilities of the new legislative environment are included.
Beyond the law – designing & cascading Safeguarding policies
An engaging 2½ hour workshop to consider the possible scenarios for safeguarding in the future. We unravel the recent changes, high profile cases and discuss their likely impact on your organisation.
Group discussion will consider personalised scenarios to support the development of your strategic plans and enable sharing of best practice. This workshop is for a small, high level group size, facilitated by an experienced safeguarding policy specialist.
