Action with Communities in Rural England (ACRE) has been awarded over £100k from the National Lottery Community Fund to promote good safeguarding practice to village and community halls throughout England.
As a valued member of the ACRE network we will be working with voluntary management committees across Leicestershire and Rutland to ensure they have the knowledge and confidence to operate in a safe and welcoming manor for all who work or use their facility
Below are some links to useful information and resources, including a recording of a training session we delivered for halls in November.
Safeguarding for Village Halls and Community Buildings Webinar
A recording of an hour long training session we delivered via Zoom covering the importance of safeguarding and good safeguarding practice for village and community halls to help provide a safe environment for all and include information on best practice examples on policies, procedures and current legislation around safeguarding. Please note that the webinar was based on an interpretation of current guidance. We strongly recommend that you refer to the latest guidance available.
