Practical Safeguarding for Community Groups

Practical Safeguarding for Community Groups

 Registration is closed for this event
WVA's course for volunteers and staff that are part of delivering services and running activities.



This course is for anyone that works with anyone in a charity, community or voluntary group setting as staff or a volunteer. It takes into account the strong, consistent relationship the staff and volunteers have with people in the community and the importance of that relationship.  Together, we focus on a realistic and practical approach to safeguarding and avoiding challenging situations.

There are various courses available that take safeguarding from the client's perspective, this course flips the idea around and looks at it from the 'worker's' viewpoint.  This makes the information relevant in a number of situations from planning to delivery and evaluation.  The course also features logistic and operational information to support organisations create a holistic approach to keeping everyone involved safe.

There is no role-play or quiz, you will not be put on the spot or challenged as an individual to answer.



  • Current principles of adult and child Safeguarding
  • Who do we Safeguard and how?
  • Types of abuse and their signs and signifiers
  • Practical tools and considerations
  • Recording and reporting



This course is free to members of WVA.  The cost is subsidised by payments from Adult Community Learning accessed via Warrington Vale Royal College.  This means that there is a registration / enrolment form and evaluation paperwork that is completed at the start of every session.  The personal details collected are only used to calculate subsidy payments.

The session is designed to be 5 hours long (9:00am – 2:00pm) with a short comfort break in the middle. 

Due to the relationship and communication, the tutor has with the learners we politely ask that each learner directly registers themselves with an email address they can access.
