Congratulations to the volunteers from Noah’s Ark in Loughton who completed their basic Safeguarding Awareness training this weekend! Noah’s Ark is a toddler group  on the Oakwood Hill Estate in Debden run by volunteers from Restore Doxa Deo and other local churches. It regularly has over 30 toddlers and families attending. This was the first in our new series of Introduction to Safeguarding courses and we were delighted to work with such a fantastic group.

During the day  we explored situations which were familiar in a pre-school setting like:
– what type of risks in good practice can you take when parents and children are your friends?
– how do you build a culture where people are not fearful but still alert to possible concerns for children’s safety?

Basic Safeguarding Awareness training gives volunteers and staff the confidence that they are using best practice and about what to do in different situations, and    if you would like to attend one of our local workshops  please get in touch .  We can also bring customised training brought to your setting or
