Advisory- how to embed the culture into your organisation
Within her community based roles Leanne often met organisations who were required to write Child Protection Policies, train staff on them, embed child protection into their organisation and know what to do if a concern came their way, all within their already overloaded role and for the majority to do this as a volunteer in their spare time.
Leanne is available to make this easier for you by offering a bespoke service to support and guide you through the process of developing a child centred culture with embedding child protection in your organisations everyday operations. This includes Child Protection Training for frontline staff who are working with children regularly and also governance staff who are responsible for implementing policies and managing staff and volunteers working with children.
Leanne is now based in the Waikato and frequently travels around the North Island to deliver training for organisations, she endeavours to keep costs accessible to organisations and for the training to not be out of reach for organisations with stretched budgets and therefore not happening - get in touch today and see how we work together to get the training out there and keep our tamariki at the heart of our decisions.
"After meeting with Leanne to discuss the training it was evident that she is not only passionate about Child Protection but importantly, she was able to understand our environment and the associated risks to players, volunteers and staff."
General Manager Hockey, Manawatu
