A Safe Space, Level 2 – Creating a safe space

Find out what you can do to create a safe space

Who’s it for

Leaders, assistant leaders, unit helpers, leaders in training, young leaders, peer educators, and those that need to complete Level 3 and 4.

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

You’ll learn about

  • What is a safe space and why it’s important
  • What to do if you have concerns about a member
  • How to create a safe space
  • What to do if it isn’t safe
  • How to keep yourself safe
  • Where to go to for help

What you need to do

You can either go to a face-to-face training session or complete the module 2 e-learning and have a follow up chat with A Safe Space trainer or a commissioner. They'll need to have up to date Levels 1-3 training. Download the module 2 worksheet and follow up guidance.


If you're attending a Level 3 training session, you might be able to have your follow-up chat with the same trainer before the session. Contact your training coordinator to plan this in advance. 

Do the e-learning module

How long does it take?

  • Training session: 2 to 2.5 hours. Speak to your commissioner or country/region office to find out when the next session is.


  • E-learning: 20 to 25 minutes and a follow-up chat of about 10 minutes.
