We want to ensure that people working with children and the wider Croydon population have every opportunity to raise their awareness of safeguarding children.  In addition many of our tender opportunties require you to have a knowledge of safeguarding practices. 

All Croydon suppliers and employees can register to access over 30 courses through the Croydon Safeguarding Childrens Board (CSCB) website. These courses are free and can be completed in around 40-60 minutes where you will receive a certificate on completetion.

By signing up to the on-line training you will also have access to free Equal Opportunity & Diversity Training (a requirement for the Good Employer Croydon Charter).

There is a specific campaign, with Crystal Palace Football Club, called Triple C – this partnership promotes safeguarding  – particularly to the business sector and is planning a workshop to be held at Crystal Palace Football club to raise awareness and seek commitment from Croydon businesses to use the free training available. Please see the following link for details on the last event held:
