Creating a safe and welcoming environment, where everyone is respected and valued, is at the heart of safeguarding.
It’s about making sure your organisation is run in a way that actively prevents harm, harassment, bullying, abuse and neglect. It’s also about being ready to respond safely and well if there is a problem. Everyone in the organisation has a role to play in safeguarding. It should become part of your day to day activities.
Every organisation that delivers charitable activities has a duty to safeguard volunteers, staff members, participants and donors.
