Standard Safeguarding Disabled Children and Young People Training Course

This course is designed for all those who work or volunteer directly with disabled children, young people or their families. NSPCC research tells us that children and young people with a disability are 3.4 times more likely to be abused than those without a disability. Therefore, it is critical for all those who work with disabled children and young people to be vigilant and aware of relevant safeguarding issues.

This after-school or half-day session will raise your awareness of safeguarding children and young people with a specific focus on

  • increasing your confidence in identifying and understanding the additional vulnerabilities of disabled children to abuse

  • gaining an increased understanding of possible difficulties faced by disabled children and young people in communicating their experience of abuse and strategies to support you in your communication techniques

  • understanding more about effective risk assessment within your work environment in order to prevent possible abuse to disabled children and young people

  • ensuring there is an equality of service delivery and experience of service provision for those children and young people with a disability.

All participants receive a comprehensive training pack and SAFE Certificate, valid for 3 years. This is a specialised course, which will build on your existing knowledge achieved from our Standard Child Safeguarding training.
