Charity safeguarding resources

SCIE is proud to support charities in our safeguarding work. Charities across the UK play an important role in the lives of many children, young people and adults with care and support needs. Good safeguarding practice is more than just a tick-box exercise, it’s about culture and behaviour.

Useful resources to support safeguarding

SCIE has been funded by The National Lottery Community Fund to promote resources from the National Council for Voluntary Organisations (NCVO) on safeguarding. Use the links below to find guidance relevant to your organisation.

We’re also promoting a new government safeguarding tool which offers a step-by-step guide to help charities correctly manage their concerns, identify the right people to contact if needed and access helpful resources and advice.

Working with faith-based, and user-led organisations

SCIE is delighted to have been awarded funding to use our expertise to run workshops, webinars and training to improve safeguarding in charities. It's vital to include people who use services and carers at the heart of safeguarding decisions taken about them and we bring our experience of co-production to the initiative.

We are aiming to support small faith-based organisations to access materials via regional workshops across the country, and to access webinars and bespoke training courses. We will also work with user-led organisations supporting people with disabilities to devise detailed guidance looking at safeguarding governance and accountability.

We’re keen to hear from faith-based or user-led organisations to help us in this work. If you’d like to get involved or learn more, please get in touch using the details below.
