Safeguarding is everyone's responsibility

Safeguarding is everyone’s responsibility. The Charity Commission also make it clear that safeguarding is a key governance issue for charities to comply with.

However, compliance with legislation is often not the main reason people attend training; they do it because they want to stop abuse. Our courses equip you recognise and report abuse correctly. This helps to stop abuse.
