0-5 Community Offer training for Parent and Toddler Leaders Summer 2021

All courses will be delivered online subject to demand. In this brochure you will find a range of training that will support you on your journey of running a parent and toddler group. It will take you from your initial idea, right though to making the group a great place to support children and families in your community. You do not need to do every course in the brochure but can choose courses linked to where you are on your journey. We would recommend that those who are responsible for the running of the group should attend training in Safeguarding Children and Paediatric First Aid if they have not already. For those who receive funding from the Early Childhood Community Fund, we would expect group leaders to have attended these two courses as a minimum.

Safeguarding and Village Halls

The organisers of activities and events are responsible for ensuring people’s safety and wellbeing during their time there, but it doesn’t mean the village hall volunteers and staff are absolved from responsibility. it’s helpful to have a closer look at why it’s especially important for hall committees to have the right policies and procedures in place.
