The Let’s Talk Sessions are available once a week and the links are always the same to join, so why not drop in and Let’s Talk.

Let’s Talk Safeguarding                                       

Every Wednesday from 12:30 - 13:30

Join the Microsoft Teams meeting

Let’s talk all things safeguarding, for example: 

  • Policies
  • Changing rooms
  • Photography guidance
  • Specific safeguarding concerns

The team will also be available to discuss any other concerns that clubs or centres may be experiencing. We’re here to support. 

“I’ll certainly use the Lets Talk sessions again, you can't beat talking through safeguarding issues and getting common sense and expert advice.”
