Safeguarding Training for groups in Milton Keynes

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.

Date: Thursday 23rd November – 10am to 1pm

Venue: The Almere in Central Milton Keynes (353 Avebury Boulevard, Central Milton Keynes ,MK9 2FF).

Support Us on Givto

We’re delighted to announce that we’ll be featuring on Givto in September 2023!

Givto is a new way to donate to charity that allows users to give to a different cause each month with one simple Direct Debit. The service was developed by volunteers in Leeds who wanted to support local charities during the pandemic. Following a successful pilot in Yorkshire, Givto is now being rolled out to people nationwide. Givto offers users the chance to support local charities and discover new causes – like ours.

Each month, Givto users are given three causes to choose from. We’ve been selected to feature in September, and we’re so excited to share our cause with a new audience and hopefully raise funds for Community Action: MK to support our work with the voluntary groups and communities across Milton Keynes.

Givto also feature us in a Directory of all the worthy causes they’ve helped where you can search by cause and location, and you can check our page here.

If you’d like to support us this September, sign up to donate with Givto today.
