Guiding is about fun, adventure, learning – and staying safe. All Girlguiding volunteers need to complete the level of A Safe Space appropriate for their role, and follow our policies to make sure all our members have a safe space for their guiding.
Please check out the safeguarding policy and procedures. If anything isn’t clear, ask. If you’re worried about something, make sure you follow the procedures. Remember – safeguarding is everyone’s responsibility.
is about more than safeguarding: it is designed to enable leaders to create an environment that helps us live out our values and Promise. It increases self-esteem and self-confidence and gives opportunities for adventure and challenge, whilst encouraging members to think for themselves and make their own decisions.
A Safe Space trainings will be under ‘My Achievements’, and if you are a unit leader you will also be able to check the training for the other volunteers in your unit by viewing them under the sub-heading, ‘Individuals’. You can then select ‘View Achievements’ as your ‘Action’ and see that leader’s completed courses and e-learnings. Please talk to your commissioner about accessing the training you, or anyone in your team needs and if you have any further queries regarding this, please do get in touch.
