Over the summer, the NSPCC’s child protection podcast is focusing on issues relevant to voluntary and community groups. The first episode provides an introduction to safeguarding for voluntary and community groups, including advice, tips and guidance on how to get policies and procedures in place and information about what training is available. These podcasts were produced as part of a partnership led by NCVO, funded by the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) and the National Lottery Fund within the Safeguarding Training Fund programme.
