Save the date: Seminar on child safety for organisations

Wednesday, March 01, 2017   Posted in: Training By: Administrator With tags: seminar, children, safety, policy

Community Networks Aotearoa.Child Matters and Community Networks Aotearoa have been contracted by MSD to provide a series of seminars around the country. These seminars are about maintaining the safety of children in your organisation.

Date and Time: Monday 22nd May 2017, from 2pm
Location: Christchurch Community House (301 Tuam Street).

This seminar will cover:

  • what you need in your policies regarding safety of children regardless of whether that is your core work or not.
  • how you can cover off child safety in their policies, and who these policies should cover.
  • what sort of checks and procedures need to undertaken when recruiting volunteers - irrespective of their work in communities.
  • how to tell if there is some issue with volunteers (such as a volunteer's response to perceived abuse), including what to do about it, and who to talk to.

These seminars are essential even if your organisation does not specifically provide children's services. This is because of the Government focus on safety of children, the Better Public Service targets and simply to ensure professionalism and best practice in all organisations.

Community Networks Aotearoa is extremely pleased to be collaborating with Child Matters who are the acknowledged experts in NZ on training for these issues. It is hoped that many boards, paid staff, volunteers and government workers attend these seminars.
