Community and voluntary organisations need to ensure safe recruitment practices to help make sure their staff and volunteers are suitable to work with children, young people and adults as part of their commitment to keep children safe from harm.
Safer recruitment of staff and volunteers should be a continuing process of improvement within your organisation.
Taking place remotely using Zoom, this session will be delivered by Catalyst Stockton on behalf of Northumberland CVA as part of Safer Culture North East. Attendance is free to Northumberland voluntary and community organisations, and to those operating in other areas covered by the partnership.
This session covers how to recruit safely to ensure the safeguarding of children, young people, and adults in the recruitment of staff and volunteers in community and voluntary organisations.
By the end of this workshop you will have gained an understanding of:
- Your organisations' safeguarding responsibilities in recruitment and management
- Key safeguarding issues involving staff
- Key safeguarding issues involving volunteers
- What needs to be included in a robust safeguarding policy and effective procedures
