How to write a Safeguarding Policy
Any organisation or group that works with children or young people or is in regular contact with them should have a Safeguarding policy with a clear set of guidelines about how they will keep children safe and to respond to child protection concerns. The NSPCC provides useful advice about how to write a Safeguarding policy and what to take into consideration; they also provide a Safeguarding policy template as a starting point. Once your organisation or group has an agreed policy, there should be a plan of action to make sure all adults and children are aware of, understand and can access the safeguarding policy.
You can access past editions of the e-bulletin below. If you would like to be included in the distribution list of the e-bulletin or want to suggest a safeguarding topic for future editions, please email Andrea Klingel firstname.lastname@example.org
