Safer In Sport coronavirus update: 16 April 2020

Dear Safer Programme Members

Membership

  • As a reminder we will not be billing organisations for their membership for the time being. We will work out a way to make this fair to all once we know more about what is happening with the lockdown situation. If you have any questions about this please do let me know.

Training

  • If you are due refresher safeguarding training we will be extending the period by 6 months. So if your refresher is due anytime March onwards we will add 6 months onto this until the end of the lockdown. Rest assured we will put on more courses to ensure you can all continue to access the Safer training when life resumes and begins to look a little more like normal.
  • New starters. If you are recruiting volunteers or staff and need safeguarding training in the meantime please let us know. There are packages we can deliver virtually according to need. Please get in touch with us and we'll happily talk to you about what is needed and how we can help you.
  • The wider NSCP multi agency training will be looking to put on 'bite sized' online/interactive training in the near future. These will be on topics very pertinent to what is happening and our way of working in safeguarding at this present time. We will make sure you all as member have access to these training topics. Again if you have any questions please do not hesitate to give me a call or email.

Online Safety

Online Safer Members Meeting

  • Would there be any interest in a online (via Zoom) question and answer session about safeguarding? This would be hosted by us here at the Safer Programme and would last a maximum of an hour. If you are interested in this please contact us at safer@norfolk.gov.uk

Volunteering for the Covid-19 Response Teams

Safeguarding Adults

  • I thought it would be useful to highlight the work of the fabulous Norfolk Safeguarding Adults Board. We work closely with the NSAB, they have a great website and twitter feed so please do go and have a look at their response to Covid-19 and work in general. Their twitter handle is @NorfolkSAB

The Safer Programme team wish you all well and remember we are here if you need to talk over anything.
