The Highland Child Protection Committee have made available ‘Child Protection Guidance and Toolkit for Third Sector Organisations in Highland‘. Click the button below to download the toolkit.
This Guidance has been produced for larger Third Sector Organisations and those with a number of paid staff who should have robust child protection policies and procedures in place.
The guidance provides detailed advice on child protection issues, and tools to help support recruitment of staff and volunteers.
For smaller organisations primarily using volunteers to provide activities for children, young people and families in Highland you may wish to download the Highland Child Protection Guidance for Community Groups. This may include sports clubs, arts and crafts groups, religious organisations or any organised groups/activities which involve regular contact with children and young people.
