Keeping up to date with the safeguarding regulations is really vital for all voluntary groups and organisations. 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 effectively if there is a problem. Having an up to date safeguarding policy is a key requirement when you apply for external funding.

Safeguarding is the area that is often mentioned by the groups that we work with as a training need and that is why we have teamed up with the local safeguarding expert and trainer to offer this training to local groups in Milton Keynes.
