Safe Space Training

Please be aware that from 1 January 2021 every unit must have one leader present at the meeting who has completed Level 3. This can be either a leader, leader in training or assistant leader. If there is no one present with Level 3 the meeting cannot take place. 

Safe Space compliant – what does this mean? Most volunteers (including unit leaders; yl’s, occasional/residential helpers, mentors and home contacts) are required to complete 1 or more levels of Safe Space training depending on their role(s).    Everyone needs to have completed ALL of their trainings by 31 December 2020 (no extension will be granted for COVID). 

What trainings do I and other volunteers need to do? This depends on your role(s). The level per each unit role can be found here
