MM that’s pretty big step for a small group in a community but nevertheless its really important to be able to manage the business of safeguarding.
but all those putting on activities do need to be mindful of any risk of harm to child, regrettably there have been number of incidence over the years – what happens for instance if a child in your care wonders off and is then struck by car.
in the current climate i am afraid you do need to have thought through such issues, Safe network’s standards have an IT based self assessment that allows you confidentially to assess how well your group looks after the children in its care and provides you with an action -plan and the resources including draft risk assessment templates to help you on your way
Just to follow on – here is the link to the online self-assessment where you can see whether your organisation meets the recommended standards for keeping children and young people safe.
