To run alongside the recently produced safeguarding policy (copy of the document accessible here: http://jerseycharities.org/other-useful-links.html) we have arranged a series of workshops on Safeguarding Children, delivered by Mary Curtis. Following on from the Safeguarding Adults in July, this training is slightly different so please attend even if you attended the workshops in July. Ideally every volunteer and staff member who comes into contact with any 'at risk' groups should complete this training.
Please see this link to MASH (Multi Agency Safeguarding Hub) video here. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gtdt3MBie_E
Training details as follows:
Both held at Jersey Employment Trust, Kensington Chambers, Kensington Street, St Helier.
Tuesday 11th October 1.30 to 4.30
Thursday 13th October 5.30 to 8.30
Please contact the administrator to book a place on either of these, which are free to AJC members.

Safe Recruitment with Mary Curtis. Wednesday 5th October 1.30 to 4.30 Jersey Employment Trust, Kensington Chambers, Kensington Place, St Helier - This free workshops have been designed especially for AJC members and their work in the voluntary sector. It is important for ALL member charities to send a representative to this workshop, even if you are a very small operation with only volunteers. It is the responsibility of the committee to ensure 'safe recruitment', therefore it should be the CEO/manager/chairman or other committee member who attends. This workshop is relevant to everyone that you bring on board to your charity, including your committee/officers. Whether you use a set recruiting procedure, or it is more informal - ALL staff and volunteers within a member charity will at some point come in to contact with 'people at risk'. Please contact the administrator to book your place.

The AJC is pleased to provide the following training. Presented by Jane Galloway of Arclight Solutions. Tuesday 20th September 2016 9.30am to 1pm Jersey Employment Trust, Kensington Place, St Helier
