Girlguiding are recommending that all Leaders hold A Safe Space Level 3.  To support this, Girlguiding South West England are encouraging all Units in the Region to have at least two Leaders with Level 3 by the end of July, and for all Leaders in every Unit to have A Safe Space Level 3 by the end of 2022. 


Trainers are required to renew their Training Qualification every three years and the forms and information provided should help with this process.
