Safeguarding Ambassador's Network
The Ambassador's network aims to promote and develop good
practice in safeguarding across the third sector in Wales. The
network is a community of practice facilitated by WCVA and
representatives from the County Voluntary Councils (CVCs).
The vision for the Network is that the safeguarding ambassadors
will work to share information and develop good practice in all
areas of safeguarding, excellent training materials and delivery
methods, including the use of the All Wales Safeguarding Awareness
pack in the wider context beyond the social care workforce.
The group aims to:
- share general safeguarding information,
- promote safeguarding consistently and widely across third
- inform any third sector representation on regional safeguarding
- provide a means to cascade National Independent Safeguarding
board and Charity Commission information to the third sector,
- and promote good practice in safeguarding practice and training
with excellent training materials and delivery methods.
The network meets twice a year to share learning and hear from
guest speakers on relevant topics relating to safeguarding.
Who can join?
Membership of the network is open to representatives from third
sector organisations in the following roles:
- Safeguarding practitioners
- Safeguarding Officers or designated leads
- Safeguarding trainers
- Trustees with responsibility for safeguarding
