This workshop will build on good practice for organisations who deliver children’s programmes, such as afterschool care, sports organisations, recreation programmes, school camps and school sport staff/volunteers.
Having a Child Protection Policy in place highlights your organisations commitment to the protection of children. It provides clear guidelines and steps to report child abuse and neglect. With a policy in place and implemented across the organisation it enables staff and volunteers to feel supported when working with children and empowered to take action if a situation arises.
Each organisation will have a Designated Person for Child Protection, as part of their Child Protection Policy. This person is identified as the go to person if there are any concerns about the welfare of a child.
