SCI are now offering seminars to help you develop robust child protection policies and procedures no matter which organisation you represent or are connected to.

Whether you or your organisation works directly or indirectly with children even in a voluntary capacity we all must take responsibility for child protection to create ‘child-safe’ organisations. Perhaps as a parent you would like to know more about how Child Protection Policies and safe recruitment keeps your children safe when they are away from you attending school or a leisure activity.

These workshops are aimed at anyone wanting to develop a safeguarding/child protection policy and procedures tailored to the type of contact that your organisation has with children.

New government safety checking regulations made under the Vulnerable Children Act 2014 require all paid employees and contractors who work with children for state-funded organisations be safety checked. This also applies to unpaid people working with children as part of an educational or vocational training course. The new safety checking regulations will make it easier to identify the small number of people who are a risk to children.

The new regulations are being phased in from 1 July 2015 and this seminar will help you understand this new regulation and plan towards it.
