Safeguarding Awareness Workshops
Oxfordshire Scouts run regular safeguarding workshops to ensure our volunteers are aware of The Scout Association's Child Protection Policy "Young People First" and their role in implementing it.
We run training and workshops for both new leaders, and regular updates for current leaders.
Safeguarding for new and current volunteers
Additional workshops are run for those who need a safeguarding update prior to an appointment review, which is mandatory every 5 years. For workshops see below or contact Alison Matthews to arrange a workshop in your area. An online training module is also available, please speak to your line manager if you are going to undertake this option.
