Basic Safeguarding training for volunteers

We produced a video of our online basic safeguarding training for volunteers who were applying for funding and were required to have had some basic safeguarding training. This training was created with volunteers at community buildings and village halls in mind so is particularly suitable for those wanting a good basic understanding of safeguarding.

You can download the notes which accompany the video.

Information sheet on safeguarding and village halls

We have an information sheet on safeguarding and village halls produced by the national rural charity ACRE. This is available on request from Tracey Morgan - email
