How can charities and community organisations continue to deliver safe and effective services online?
Since the start of the pandemic, many organisations across the UK have been rushing to shift their face-to-face services online. Delivering essential services to vulnerable groups in this new context has come with a number of safety challenges. With many organisations working out how to best transfer their safeguarding knowledge to a digital format, it’s been hard to find what best practice looks like.
This virtual session organised by Tech for Good Brighton, Superhighways and Netsquared London will explore in more detail how to put safeguarding at the heart of your online service delivery during the Covid-19 pandemic.
We'll have talks from:
Charné Tromp of the Centre for the Acceleration of Social Technology (CAST) & Eva Kestner of Against Violence & Abuse
Charné and Eva will talk you through DigiSafe, your new step-by-step guide to digital safeguarding. The guide was written by a network of organisations as part of the Catalyst Network specifically for charities designing new digital services or taking existing ones online.
Emma Anderson, Safeguarding Lead at Oxford Hub
Oxford Hub is a charity running a range of programmes using hundreds of volunteers from across the city. In March, Oxford Hub set up a community response to support people affected by the Covid 19 lockdown. This meant putting in a range of safeguarding measures in place to ensure that everyone is kept safe and still able to get the support they need. Emma will talk about their Safeguarding Framework which captures their learnings from the past 9 months.
There will be time after the talks to share your own reflections, tips and challenges.
Please note that the talks will be recorded so we can share it with people that can't make it in person.
Hope to see you there!
