Safeguarding Courses


Safeguarding refers to the proactive approach to keeping children, young people and adults at risk safe from harm. All RDA Groups have a legal duty of care not only to protect those who use their services but also to promote their welfare by taking all reasonable steps to ensure risks of harm are minimised.

The course focuses specifically on Safeguarding in RDA and will help those who attend to create a safe environment for staff, volunteers and participants.

The tutor-led course will cover:

  • What is safeguarding?
  • Types of abuse and signs/indicators
  • Awareness of legislation and statutory guidance that frames safeguarding practices
  • Your responsibilities, including best practice and professional behaviour
  • Safer recruitment practices
  • How to deal with and report concerns and allegations within RDA

Back at your Group you’ll be able to:

  • Implement policies and best practice which serve to protect children and adults from abuse
  • Spot the signs and indicators that could mean someone is at risk of significant harm
  • Advise staff and volunteers on what to do if they are worried or have concerns

Who is this for?

The course is suitable for all trustees, volunteers and coaches.
