Voluntary and community groups

We all have a responsibility to help keep children safe. Organisations working with children and young people must have safeguarding policies and procedures in place and be able to respond to child protection concerns. But we understand that it's not always easy to know exactly what you need to do.

That's why we've produced a range of resources for voluntary and community groups. Whether you're just starting out or you're reviewing existing processes, we're here to help.
