Child Protection Workshops

Child Protection Workshops for Community Organisations and Clubs 

Join Sport Taranaki and The Wheelhouse for these FREE workshops covering the vital topic of Child Protection delivered by Leanne Crouch. 

The first workshop focusses on policy development and the second on putting this into practice.  If you are in a governance role or on a committee then workshop 1 is definitely for you.  If you work directly with children then session 2 is for you. 

We know that in reality you probably do both so join us for both.  Sport Taranaki will be providing refreshments between the two sessions.  The perfect opportunity to network with others and find out more about the opportunities available through Sport Taranaki and The Wheelhouse. 

These sessions are available FREE to all trusts, clubs, societies, voluntary and community organisations within Taranaki who work with children and young people.
