Lay Members for Darlington Safeguarding Boards
Darlington Safeguarding Boards are seeking to recruit Lay Members for both the Darlington Safeguarding Children Board and the Darlington Safeguarding Adults Board.
The role of Lay Members is to raise awareness within the community of abuse and neglect and what action should be taken when abuse is suspected. They also promote the welfare of children and adults at risk and will raise awareness of the work of the Safeguarding Boards.
The role is voluntary but expenses such as travel will be reimbursed if required. Training and support is also provided. The deadline for applications is Friday 2 March 2018.
