The Event Evaluation Form
One of these forms needs completing after every single event you run. This is anything we do with young people - from small groups to Glory Revolution, from Gods Gangs to Messy Church.
The form is really important for 2 big reasons. First of all, for best practice it's good to reflect on what we're doing and how it went to help us give quality youth and kids work. We want to do things well. Secondly, it's massively important for safeguarding and accountability. It enables us to see what's been happening and gives the ability to record any incidents that happen at our events means we have a good professional list of event evaluations that we can reference to if needed.
This form is really important, it's not negotiable. Some weeks it might be really quick, others it might take a bit of time. But please, for your own best practice and protection, fill this form out after each event!
The Significant Conversation Form
This form is to record any key conversations we have had with young people. This often occurs in mentoring or 1 on 1 conversations. If there is something you hear from a young person that you think might need reporting, fill out this form. It allows you to show what was said they the young person and yourself.
The Electronic Communication Form
We need you to record any electronic communications you have with young people whether it be by email, text, facebook or other streams of communication. It's a really quick and simple form to show what you have discussed and when it was discussed. This is an important form to keep you and your young people safe when communicating in these ways.
