This course will qualify you to become a Safe Network Champion. The training is free of charge, but you are expected to commit some time as a Champion following the course (check details here).

What is the Safe Network?

The Safe Network provides safeguarding information, advice and support to voluntary and community sector organisations across England. Launched in June 2009, Safe Network is jointly managed by the NSPCC, Children England and the Child Accident Prevention Trust (CAPT). It is funded by the Department for Education.

What is a Safe Network Champion?

Safe Network Champions are individuals who work in the voluntary and community sector, and who have been trained by the Safe Network to raise awareness and understanding of safeguarding within their own organisations or communities. They act as representatives of the Safe Network, are sent Safe Network materials and products to circulate as appropriate, and may hold information-sharing or training sessions for colleagues or local partners on behalf of the Safe Network. They also feedback news and issues from their communities to the Safe Network, to help improve the relevance and quality of its services.
