Safer Organisations, Safer Children - new Working With Children Check booklet now available

Safer Organisations, Safer Children - A guide to making your organisation child-safe and friendly

The Working with Children (WWC) Screening Unit has developed a booklet to help organisations create safer environments
for children. The WWC Check is like a swimming pool fence....a great safety measure but no substitute for supervision or
teaching a child to swim. This is why organisations should implement a variety of child safeguarding strategies.

The booklet provides information about a range of safeguarding strategies that can be implemented, including thorough staff recruitment, risk management and how to involve children so they feel safe, valued and respected.
