Keeping Children Safe for Youth Leaders

Does your organisation have young people as leaders or mentors for children? Youth leaders need to ensure they are working in a safe and appropriate way with children and understand their responsibilities to respond to concerns for child safety. Youth leaders do not have the same responsibilities as adults in recognising and responding to child abuse or neglect. Likely scenarios will be worked through and discussed in small groups to embed the learning in a practical way. The content is specifically designed for the 13-20 year old age group.

What will I learn?

  • Introduction to some of the signs of abuse and neglect for children.
  • What they should do if a child discloses abuse to them.
  • What they should do if they are worried about an adult or fellow youth leader’s behaviour.
  • What the guidelines are for appropriate and safe behaviour when working with children.
  • What difficulties and practical issues they may face in applying the above.

Who is this course for?

The content is specifically designed for the 13-20 year old age group.

This course will be run for a minimum group of 15 youth leaders (can be from multiple organisations) who need to be in one room together with an adult from the organisation to support them. The safeguarding consultant will either be in the room in person or via Zoom link and will facilitate the session including answering any questions and providing guidance on the scenario work.
