A Safe Space, Level 1 – An introduction

Find out how to keep girls safe so they can have fun and grow in a great environment.

Who’s it for?

All volunteers including occasional helpers, GO coordinators, home contacts, peer educators and young leaders.

People visiting units more than once should be asked to complete the Level 1 A Safe Space training. As we cannot log or enforce this training until someone is a registered volunteer on GO there is no need to ask for proof of completion. Anyone completing the eLearning can download and save or print a certificate at that time should they later want it as proof.

People visiting a unit once do not need to be asked to complete the Level 1 A Safe Space training but if returning,  please do ensure they are aware of the importance of understanding and implementing our safeguarding practice.

Our older A Safe Space training is the equivalent of Levels 1 and 2 of this A Safe Space training
