What is safeguarding : This guide from Know How at NCVO tells you everything you need to know.
It includes steps to a safer organisation : understanding the steps to doing safeguarding well.
For organisations whose main work is with children or with adults at risk, NCVO recommends:
- For organisations whose main work is with 0-18 year olds we recommend you work through these safeguarding standards and this checklist (from NSPCC Learning).
- For organisations whose main work is with adults at risk we recommend this checklist and guides (from the Ann Craft Trust).
