The Leicestershire and Rutland Safeguarding Children’s Board (LSCB) has commissioned a survey to identify the breadth of the voluntary and community sector (VCS) and its learning and development needs.
We want to ensure that everyone working with children, young people and families is confident, competent and committed to safeguarding children and young people. We also want to make sure that they have access to learning, development and training that enables them to provide the best service possible.
Influence the future of safeguarding training
This questionnaire will give you a chance to influence the future development of safeguarding training, resources and information in your area. There are a few different ways to complete the questionnaire:
- Online, via our Surveymonkey form (approx. 5-7 minutes)
- Download the Word version of the form
- By contacting Natasha Kelly in the Children's Workforce Development team at firstname.lastname@example.org
If you have any issues with completing the survey, you can also contact us for guidance.
How we will use the information you provide
Why we ask for your contact details
In the process of gathering information across the sector we may identify free training or resources that may be of benefit to you. We can then contact you to advise you of these and offer further support. Information shared with the LSCB will be anonymous.
What will happen to my information?
The information you provide will NOT be shared with any other organisations. Your confidentiality is assured. Data gathered from across the workforce will be compiled into quarterly reports that will be sent to the LSCB and a final annual report. Individual organisations and agencies will not be named. These reports will inform the support available to the voluntary and community sector going forward. The report will also be published on this website.
What you’ve told us so far
Since we launched the questionnaire, we’ve already had a huge number of responses.Between August 2016 and January 2017, 92 VCS organisations responded with their views. You can read more about our current progress in our reports:
