We are pleased to announce that we have been invited to join the Essex Safeguarding Children’s Board Executive Committee to represent the voluntary sector. This is a great opportunity to expand on the work we already do in partnership with the ESCB and we are excited to work with them to enable, promote and further join up safeguarding within the brilliant voluntary sector in Essex.
We are excited to announce NEW online courses for members. You can still do level 2 food & hygiene but you can also access- Trafficking, exploitation & Modern slavery. Self harm & Suicidal Thoughts in children & y.p and Personal safety for lone workers.
FREE for members volunteers and just £15 for paid members of staff (half the cost of of the course from our online provider). Email Sharon for details on how to register firstname.lastname@example.org
