Do you enjoy working with children and want to help keep them safe from abuse? Then this might be the job for you.
CAP UK is a charity that aims to keep children Safe Strong and Free. Based on a international programme, CAP has been running in the South West for 25 years.
Our approach is to work with the whole school community by running workshops for parents, school staff and with children in whole class groups.
The children’s workshops focus on empowering children to understand their rights to safety strength and freedom. CAP teaches children to recognise unsafe situations and gives them strategies to manage these and get help. By using role-play, puppets and discussion the workshops convey these serious messages in a fun, age appropriate way.
CAPs adult workshops help the community understand how to talk to children about keeping safe. We also run child protection training to build confidence in recognising a child that is being abused and how to access support.
