Safeguarding - Do you need to update what you are doing?


7th March 2018


Safeguarding has shot to the top of the sector’s agenda in the wake of the revelations from international development charities.

But while these concerns originated from the aid sector, safeguarding is important for all charities. Just this weekend we saw new figures on sexual misconduct in the charities’ retail operations. While they are low in the context of the quarter of a million who volunteer in charity shops, we should be striving to get incidences of misconduct as close to zero as they can be everywhere throughout the sector. It’s important to us that we’re providing the support and resources to help all voluntary organisations work towards this.
