SaferCultureSaferSport Seminar Inclusive Cultures

In this seminar we will discuss how creating an inclusive Culture within your organisation can help achieve best practice in safeguarding.

Our aim is to challenge your understanding of inclusive environments. So we hope to encourage you to look inwards at your own organisation and its practices, ensuring that inclusive mindsets are embedded throughout.

But there is more to working to a safer and more inclusive culture than looking at your policies and procedures. Your objective should be to help people move away from the view that safeguarding is all about labelling and paternalistic protection.

Date: Friday 3 December 2021.
Time: 10:00 am – 11:00 am.
Location: Online – sign up below and we’ll send you an invite to an MS Teams meeting.

What will this seminar cover?

What do we mean by an ‘inclusive Culture’ within an organisation? And what do organisations need to do to create safer, more inclusive cultures?

  • Removing the labels: Are all people with impairments “vulnerable”?
