Safeguarding Children, Young People, and Adults in Museums and Heritage Sites
Organised in partnership with the Sandford Cascade Project this workshop shares best practice for safeguarding children, young people and adults including the legal responsibilities of staff and volunteers, and how to respond effectively to concerns about the well-being of those that use your service. The session will also cover methods to keep yourself safe when working with young people such as maintaining professional boundaries and following the correct procedures.
As a result of the session attendees will be able to:
- · Explain their own role with regards to safeguarding children, young people and adults
- · Describe best practice around safeguarding
- · Discuss the effectiveness of their own organisation’s procedures in keeping people safe
The workshop will be led by Martin Bell. Martin is the Training Manager at the Volunteer Centre in Leicester and has delivered safeguarding training to the voluntary sector for over twenty years. He is a member of the Leicester and Leicestershire Local Safeguarding Board’s training committee, a governor of a local special needs school and runs a theatre group for adults with learning disabilities.
