Safeguarding good practice for Charities: Governance and systems guide

As much as we would all like to say that safeguarding is not an issue in our society, it is. Safeguarding is a global issue that affects everyone. We need to acknowledge this and work together to minimise risk. We need to create working cultures that deem behaviour of this nature unacceptable to bring those responsible to justice, quicker.

To this end, we have created a best practice for charities safeguarding guide based upon our the latest thinking in the sector and 28 years’ safeguarding experience, for you to download.


In this guide, we look at:

  • Why Safeguarding is so important for Charities
  • What are the barriers to effective safeguarding practices?
  • Nine areas you need to focus on to support good practise


We believe that safeguarding and how the charity sector responds to these issues will be decisive in the coming years. Journalists are waiting for the next breach to occur, eager to sell their next story and the public is waiting for a response to help them be reassured that their money is being used as promised.
