Safeguarding resources

The National Council for Voluntary Organisations (NCVO) has recently released a new resources to assist organisations with safeguarding. The resources include a range of different tools from videos, podcasts, to briefings and more practical tools.

They cover a wide range of topics such as policies, training, reporting and responsibilities. Detailed guides for specific roles for example for Trustees, chief executives, volunteer managers etc. are also available. The NCVO hopes that providing this support will help to build safer cultures and more supportive behaviours regarding safeguarding in organisations of all sizes.

The release of these resources marks the end of phase one of work funded by the Safeguarding Training Fund, a partnership between the Department for Culture Media and Sport (DCMS) and the National Lottery Community Fund. Phase two is to focus on delivering training, promote and champion safeguarding/safe culture and enabling local networking.
