What are you doing to protect people who come into contact with your charity from abuse or mistreatment?

As a trustee, part of your duties includes taking reasonable steps to protect people who come into contact with your charity from harm. Protecting people and safeguarding responsibilities should be a governance priority for all charities and are a fundamental part of operating as a charity for the public benefit.

But what exactly does this mean? Visit GOV.UK to find out what your responsibilities are and what you need to do to manage risks, protect volunteers and staff, ensure you have the right policies, procedures and practices, and more.

Should you, or your staff, trustees or volunteers need safeguarding or mental health awareness training, Oxfordshire Youth can provide these. Take a look at our Learning and Development page to see all the courses we offer.
