In it's recent regulatory alert regarding safeguarding, the Charity Commission for England and Wales was clear;
"Safeguarding should be a key governance priority for charities, not just those working with groups traditionally considered at risk."
"If something goes wrong in a charity, the trustees are accountable and the Commission expects the trustees to take responsibility for putting things right. This is why trustees should assure themselves that their safeguarding practices are robust."
This course will give you the tools needed to review and manage safeguarding arrangements, ensuring your charity is meeting it's legal 'safeguarding duty of care', wherever it operates in the world. There has never been a better time to make sure your charity is doing all it can to protect children, young people and adults at risk.
