Safeguarding in our communities has become a big talking point in recent weeks as many volunteers try to make sure the most vulnerable people in our neighbourhoods are kept safe. It is just as important that volunteers in Kirklees, whether part of a Mutual Aid Group, registered as a volunteer with Kirklees Council or volunteering in another capacity shouldn’t be forgotten when it comes to staying safe.
Paddock Community Trust are offering free online volunteer training courses and are encouraging any volunteers who might benefit from the training to get in touch. The course focuses on volunteer safety and everyone is welcome to participate.
The course covers:
- Looking at the benefits and types of volunteering
- Exploring ways to keep yourself safe when volunteering
- How to keep others safe when you are volunteering
The course is a short series of one hour Zoom calls. There are two courses to choose from:
- Fridays 12th June, 19th June and 26th June from 1pm to 2pm
- Tuesdays 30th June, 7th July and 14th July from from 11am to 12 noon
