This EduCare programme is written by the NSPCC for anyone who comes into contact with children, young people and their parents or carers through their work or volunteer activity in a sports or active leisure setting. It provides an excellent introduction to safeguarding children and young people and will help you to recognise the early warning signs of possible abuse and provides guidance on what can be done to prevent children and young people suffering from abuse.
Written by the NSPCC with input from the Anti-Bullying Alliance, ChildLine, Stonewall and Save the Children, this programme is designed for anyone who comes into contact with children and young people through their work, voluntary or leisure activities. It covers what bullying is and why some children bully, the effects of bullying, your responsibilities and reporting your concerns and creating an anti-bullying policy and culture within your setting.
Protecting Vulnerable Adults
Protecting vulnerable adults is both a moral responsibility and a legal duty of care. Produced with a consortium of leading health and social care organisations (including Mencap, the Royal College of Nursing and St John Ambulance), this programme is essential for anyone who comes into contact with vulnerable adults through their work or voluntary activities. The programme will give you the key information you need to protect vulnerable adults in your care including: what abuse is, the key signs and indicators of abuse, people who may pose a threat, and most importantly, what to do if you suspect someone is being, or has been, abused.
