Safe from harm


This course is about creating safe recreational activities for children and young people. In order to be able to prevent, detect and deal with abuse and harassment, all leaders and adults within the activity need to share a common view and have the same tools.

That is why you all need to take this course and then make a joint decision about the procedures and guidelines that should apply to your activity. The course provides the basis for this work.
