A Safe Space

Our safeguarding training ensures that volunteers offer girls a safe space where they can have fun, learn and grow. Please note that all volunteers need to correct level of safe space training for their role by the end of 2020!

Safety is at the heart of everything we do. Because we know that when girls feel safe, they feel brave enough to do things they never thought they could.

The training will help you:

  • Understand your role in safeguarding and what to do
  • Recognise potential safeguarding issues
  • Understand our safety and safeguarding policies
  • Discuss with other volunteers what to do
  • Answer your questions

There are four levels of training. All volunteers need to undertake A Safe Space training related to their role. For example, if your role requires up to level 3 then you will need to complete levels 1, 2 and 3. Find out what training you need for your role here.

A Safe Space, Level 1

For all volunteers including occasional helpers, GO coordinators, home contacts, peer educators and young leaders. People visiting units more than once should be asked to complete the Level 1 A Safe Space training. As we cannot log or enforce this training until someone is a registered volunteer on GO there is no need to ask for proof of completion. People visiting a unit once do not need to be asked to complete the Level 1 A Safe Space training but if returning, please do ensure they are aware of the importance of understanding and implementing our safeguarding practice.

Safe Space, Level 2

For leaders, assistant leaders, unit helpers, leaders in training, young leaders, peer educators, those attending residential events and those that need level 3 and 4.
