Information for the Voluntary Sector

Many organisations, both charitable and commercial, work with groups of children and young people.  These may be: sports clubs; Religious groups; theatre groups; outdoor activities etc.

It is good practice for organisations such as these to have a safeguarding policy and related procedures for their staff and volunteers.  Such policies and procedures will ensure good practice in relation to child protection and give a measure of protection to workers from placing themselves in a vulnerable position.

It is important that these organisations write their own policy and procedures, to suit their individual circumstances.  Worcestershire Safeguarding Children Board has produced a checklist of issues to be considered to support this process.
