A free online safeguarding tool
UPDATE: in May 2021, we will be launching a new and updated self-assessment tool on the NSPCC Learning website which will replace this checklist. In the meantime, you can continue to use the checklist below.
It can be challenging to work out whether your organisation is doing enough to keep children safe. We've developed a tool to help you assess what you're already doing well, and what you need to improve to make sure all the children who come into contact with your organisation are protected.
The safeguarding self-assessment tool is designed to be used alongside our Safeguarding standards. It includes a set of simple questions for each standard, as well as resources that you can use to create a safer culture within your organisation.
You should use this tool at least once a year as part of your ongoing child protection work.
