This interactive training is set specifically in the Welsh context and will allow participants to consider the issues for their role and organisation. Through taking part in a range of exercises participants will gain an understanding of the key elements of working safely and responsibly with children and young people and how they can respond effectively where they have concerns.

The course is for those working directly or indirectly with children & young people in a wide range of workplace and community settings who may be responsible for making referrals to social services and attend multiagency events.
