VOLUNTEERING SAFELY in suffolk
In order for people in Suffolk to volunteer safely we have created easy-to-use community Safeguarding Guides – which can be downloaded and used to support in identifying safeguarding issues.
SAFEGUARDING TRAINING AND SUPPORT
In collaboration with Suffolk Safeguarding Partnerships, we’re hosting webinars to strengthen entry-level safeguarding skills for volunteers and the broader Suffolk community.
In addition we are running a telephone Hotline for Ipswich’s community volunteers and families. This is available Monday to Saturday, 9.30 am to 5pm and is coordinated by our wonderful Volunteer Safeguarding Champions.
SAFEGUARDING HOTLINE NUMBER 01473 938399
At Volunteering Matters we’re committed to good practice and keeping volunteers and our community safe by protecting the most vulnerable and at risk individuals.
