Safeguarding to be supported through new fund

Charity employees, volunteers and those that benefit from their services will be better protected under new safeguarding measures, Minister for Sport and Civil Society Tracey Crouch has announced. Up to £2 million will be invested in projects that raise awareness of safeguarding and improve incident handling, protecting more people from harm within the charity sector.

The Government’s plans include developing digital solutions that provide simple and confidential ways for charities to report concerns and give better access to clear and consistent guidance on reporting and whistle-blowing. Free training - with support from the Big Lottery Fund - will also be offered so charities can implement the highest possible safeguarding standards.
