This Introduction to child protection training is aimed at the wider workforce, who as part of their job, are likely to come into contact with children, young people and their families. It can also be used as a first step to further training in child protection.
This session is designed to help staff and volunteers identify child protection concerns and know how to respond to fulfil their shared responsibilities of protecting children and safeguarding their wellbeing.
By the end of this training participants will:
- Understand what is meant by it’s everyone’s responsibility to protect children and know about the Getting It Right For Every Child approach.
- Be able to identify possible risks and signs of child abuse and neglect
- Know what to do if you are worried about a child or young person
- Know when to seek appropriate support/supervision and where to look for this.

We are very excited to announce that we have started the formal process to purchase Ardura Forest. This is an amazing opportunity to do something a little differently with a strong focus on restoring the ancient woodlands that were replaced in the 1960’s by coniferous plantation. The photo below shows the old on the left and the plantation on the right…

We are looking for a volunteer assistant ranger for 3 months full time beginning late May. This is a great opportunity to develop skills and experience in nature conservation and rangering. The role is based in the south of Mull and involves assisting with varied tasks over a number of island sites including Iona and Staffa. Tasks will include wildlife survey work, delivery of education projects and public events programme, providing information to visitors, practical maintenance. Accommodation and some travel costs will be covered.
You must show enthusiasm for wildlife and the great outdoors. Some knowledge/experience in the relevant field would be useful but more important is flexibility, good communication skills, an ability to work under your own initiative, and a desire to learn. You will need to be willing and able to work inside or outside in all weathers, including some lone working in rugged coastal terrain. Some weekend/evening hours will be required.
Please contact Emily Wilkins for more information and an application form (no CVs please).
