What Makes a Safer Culture.

What Makes a Safer Culture?

In this seminar we will discuss how organisational culture forms the basis for achieving best practice in safeguarding. This will challenge you to move beyond compliance, or a ‘tick box’ approach to safeguarding in sport and activity. Instead, you can work towards recognising challenges and critiquing your own organisational culture.

‘Keeping people safe’ is not just about policies and procedures. We want you to feel confident to start conversations within your organisation, at all levels, to improve the collective understanding of what creates a positive safeguarding culture.

What will this seminar cover?

  • What we mean by a ‘Safer Culture’ within an organisation.
  • How we know whether a culture is safe.
  • The steps that leaders need to take to develop and maintain safer cultures.
  • How a safer culture contributes to reduced risk of abuse and harm and increased diversity, inclusivity and participation.
  • Tips to take back to your organisation to help you start to effect positive change.

Who is this seminar for?

This seminar is for anyone interested in creating organisational change in their sport and activity setting, whether at a national, county, local or club level. This might include:

  • CEOs.
  • Workforce development staff.
  • Board members.
  • Lead Safeguarding Officers.
  • Welfare Officers.
  • Athletes and participants.
