Workshop – Safeguarding, an introduction – Andrea Richards (LIVE on Zoom)

Online over Zoom

A whistlestop tour of all things safeguarding for both children and vulnerable adults in a morris seeting.  Aimed at teams who have under 18's or vulnerable adults, or are thinking of setting up a youth team.

We will cover: What is Safeguarding - whose responsibility is it? Why do we need to know? Safeguarding from what and who - and how? What to look for - and what to do. We will look at some of the law with a view to myth-busting some of the biggest misunderstandings. Children and vulnerable adults - is there a difference in what we need to consider and how we deal with it?

"Come and learn from somebody who has been Morris Dancing, playing for it, and thinking about it since he was twelve years old. After over 60 years, he must know something! This will mainly be useful for people who already play for this kind of dancing, but anybody who enjoys bashing out a tune will be most welcome. We aim to cover all styles of Morris Dancing. Acoustic instruments only, please - no electronics or percussion. Tuition will be both by ear and from printed music, which will be available in advance."
