This course is aimed at both Trustees and Charity Staff. It will take participants through what is expected of both parties in the changing world of safeguarding children and adults.
What are the duties and responsibilities of trustees for safeguarding in their own charities? How and when should Charity staff report concerns and/or serious incidents?
What does the Charity Commission expect?
The course will highlight why is it so important that Trustess, Charity Staff and volunteers all know what the others’ safeguarding responsibilities are and how they should link together in order to safeguard all those who come into contact with the charity.
The one day course will cover:
- What do we mean by the requirement for Safeguarding for ‘all those who come into contact with the Charity?’
- The Charity Commission’s ’10 things’ continued
- Current legislation and what a Charity needs to know
- Management and reporting of Serious Incidents
