Safeguarding

One of the essential requirements when running a youth club or project is to make sure everyone stays safe. This includes:

  • Safer Staff and volunteers 
  • Child Protection
  • Preventing and responding to bullying
  • Avoiding accidents and running safe activities and events. 

Our staff can support you by providing training and one to one guidance to make sure you meet safeguarding requirements. Here are some links that you may find particularly helpful. 

The North Yorkshire Safeguarding Board 
www.safeguardingchildren.co.uk
The NYSCB has a fantastic online training course which we recommend to everyone working with young people. The e-learning course takes about an hour and once you have finished you can print off a certificate to show you have completed it. We recommend that you update your knowledge by doing this course once a year.

Check out the rest of the website too as there are loads of resources and guidance that can help you provide a safe club.

Safe Network 
www.safenetwork.org.uk
The Safe Network provides small community groups with loads of valuable information and resources to help you run safe activities and projects. In 2010 NYY felt that the information and support given by the Safe Network was so good we became Safe Network Champions.
