Safeguarding E-learning

Our Safeguarding Awareness E-Learning is available for all Community Sponsorship group members.

This training course has been designed for Community Sponsorship groups preparing to welcome a refugee family.

Safeguarding is everyone’s responsibility. As a community sponsorship volunteer you must be alert to safeguarding concerns so that you are able to recognise, respond and report in a timely, efficient manner.

The course aims to support you in understanding safeguarding vulnerable adults and safeguarding children. It will explore types and indicators of abuse and neglect. You will develop knowledge and skills in recognising, responding and reporting safeguarding concerns and know how to effectively talk with the family you support about safeguarding.

Following completion of the course you can also join one of our regular Safeguarding Q&A drop-in sessions. This is an opportunity for you to reflect on your learning with others and to bring any questions that you have following this training.
