The SAFE programme aims to raise awareness of personal safety for people with additional learning needs across Gwent. SAFE works with people to deliver workshops around sexual and contraceptive health, the impact of pregnancy, personal safety issues including Mate Crime, internet safety issues including using social media and the effects of pornography and so much more.
Volunteers are needed to share useful personal safety information to their peers during this anxious time. Covid-19 has meant that more people are now using the internet as their main method of communication and as such, we on SAFE are committed to ensuring that everyone, regardless of ability, are able to use it safely. Your role as a remote Safety champon will be to share useful resources online for everyone to see.
1. Volunteer to receive SAFE champion training through an online portal and with the support of your volunteer manager.
2. Contribute to a volunteer advisory panel to help shape the content that is being shared.
3. Share posters, presentations, quizzes and forms on your personal social network channels. There is no safeguarding risk involved; we won’t ask you to add or follow anyone new – just share it amongst the people that you readily engage with on your social networks.
4. Share your reach information with us so that we know how many that you have managed to reach with your posts. There is no target, it is just helpful for us to know how many people the initiative has managed to reach.
