Online Workshop: The Wheel’s Fundamentals of Safeguarding in Volunteer Programmes

The Wheel is running an online workshop on Thursday, 14 October from 9.30am – 12 noon on the Fundamentals of Safeguarding in Volunteer Programmes.

If your nonprofit operates a volunteer programme, then you need up-to-date policies and procedures for safeguarding your volunteers.

This training will explore the impacts on volunteering currently and discuss what you can do to ensure your programme continues to be a successful and positive experience for all involved.

At the end of this session, you will have oversight of safeguarding and the practical steps involved for your organisation.

The workshop will signpost resources and tools to help you develop or update your current procedures and policies. This is a 2.5 hour session and therefore is not a substitute for full child protection training, but will give you and your organisation a solid overview of the fundamentals.

The cost of the course is €80 for members of The Wheel and €150 for non-members of The Wheel.
