  • Ensure you are made aware of your safeguarding responsibilities in relation to ‘freelance instructors’ /’sub-contractors’ who are operating in your settings and under the name of your provision

 

Topics for discussion will include:

  • Safeguarding Children concerns in our Community Sports Activities
  • Child Sexual Exploitation (CSE) – Key messages
  • Safer Recruitment – how can you ensure professionals/instructors/trainers working in your settings really are safe?
