Free safeguarding resources

The National Council for Voluntary Organisations (NCVO) have teamed up with thirteen expert partners to produce a resource pack to help organisations build a safe culture for all volunteers, staff members, participants and donors. The suite of free online resources outlines simple steps that voluntary sector organisations can take to ensure that they are run in a way that actively prevents beneficiaries, staff an others from suffering harm, harassment, bullying, abuse and neglect. The resources are available here.
