Information on Developing Safeguarding Policies and Procedures
Organisations need to have safeguarding policies and procedures in place. They are a key part of ensuring that people are clear about what safeguarding is and what should be done if there is a concern a child or adult is at risk or has been harmed. Whilst the NSCP are unable to advise on, or approve, an organisation’s safeguarding policies and procedures, the following content provides some helpful tips and resources.
