Edinburgh: Safeguarding in Befriending

Welcome to Safeguarding in Befriending. This course was designed due to a high level of requests from our membership. We understand that often these requests for further support come from an organisation facing barriers, difficulties or just realising a greater need. Our Safeguarding course is built to allow a development of knowledge and understanding for both volunteers and staff members. 

As you will see in the materials on the day, we have provided information to act as guidance for coordinators on writing/updating their safeguarding policy but we have also added materials to guide a befriender on understanding safeguarding, it's purpose and how to action it. 

All attendee's should bring their Safeguarding policy to the training for discussion. All attendee's will also receive our Befriending Networks Safeguarding policy template as well as partake in discussions, quizzes and case studies.

You will be issued your certificate of completion.
