Our first publication is launched today. "Safer Dance: Supporting the conversation" is a resource for Safeguarding Leads across all sectors to increase an understanding of the particular safeguarding issues which relate to dance in out-of-school settings. This will be most useful for those who run dance schools and those who work with children who attend such schools. It can be found here: Resources .
