In Safe Hands

This three-hour workshop supports clubs to put child protection policies into practice. It is most suitable for those acting as a club's child protection officer but is also relevant for those responsible for managing and organising clubs and groups. Candidates should attend a Safeguarding and Protecting Children workshop prior to attending the In Safe Hands workshop.

In Safe Hands workshop dates will be released in early 2019.

The cost of both workshops is £10 per Bowls Scotland or SIBA Member and £25 for non-members. Participants must be aged 16 or over on the date of the workshops.
