Adult Safeguarding Basics
For Community and Volunteer-led organisations anywhere in Kirklees
Thursday 22nd October from 6pm to 7pm
We all have a role to play in keeping people safe from harm and abuse. Covid has meant that more vulnerable adults are ‘invisible’ as they are unable to access their usual support services.
This short briefing for community groups and volunteer-run groups will include:
- Measures your group can take to protect staff, volunteers and those who use your services or participate in your activities
- Signs and indicators to look out for when you are helping ‘adults at risk’ in your community
- What to do if you think someone may need help.
The Training will be delivered via Zoom by Third Sector Leaders Kirklees in partnership with Yorkshire Children’s Centre.
