Webinar: Child Safeguarding and COVID-19
To help our members’ network as well as any other organisations working with, or for, children better deal with child safeguarding issues, Keeping Children Safe is organising free online webinars on the subject of Child Safeguarding and COVID-19 – available wherever you are in the world.
The global emergency caused by the COVID-19 pandemic has increased existing safeguarding risks, as well as adding some new risks too. As part of our mission, we have identified ways of implementing the International Child Safeguarding Standards during the pandemic, and made them available to organisations, so they can make sure no child comes to harm during these tough times.
An introduction to KCS, what we do, the concept of child safeguarding, and a brief presentation of the international standards
An overview of the safeguarding risks during the COVID-19 pandemic, and possible mitigation strategies
Keeping Children Safe’s COVID-19 briefing sets out how organisations can use our international standards to ensure they do all they can to protect children from harm by their staff, programmes, operations and partners. It is not exhaustive and will be continually updated as the context changes and new challenges and good practices emerge.
Join thousands of child safeguarding practitioners from around the world to receive news and updates about our online courses, workshops, conferences, and special announcements.
