Risk Assessments for Youth Programmes
This course brings risk assessments to life, highlighting why they are so much more important than the ‘tick-box exercise’ they sometimes have a reputation for being. You’ll take away specific examples of good practice you can implement straight into your planning, as this course has been written especially for organisations delivering holiday programmes.

Delivered by StreetGames’ risk management partners, Pharos Response; the crisis management experts, who know only too well what happens when risks aren’t managed effectively. Designed for youth workers and/or managers who are responsible for either writing risk assessments or approving those written by colleagues or perhaps external providers you work with. Delivered in a highly engaging manner, with interactive exercises and scenario-based activities specific to holiday programmes.

Attendees will gain confidence in writing risk assessments, learn how to avoid common mistakes and know what to look for in the risk assessments of other organisations. The ultimate aim is of course to make programmes safer and support the objectives and outcomes of the programme, but also to better protect the organisation if something does go wrong. Delegates will receive a certificate of attendance.

Monday 17th June | 2:00pm-5:00pm (Online)
